PDC18: Design for Excellence II: Physics of Failure

*Dock Brown, CRE, DfR Solutions
Monday, September 18 | 1:30pm — 5:00pm

Course Objectives
Physics of Failure (PoF) also known as Reliability Physics, is a science-based approach for achieving Reliability by Design in electronic products. The methodology is based on research into the conditions that cause electronic components and materials to fail. A PoF analysis combines dynamic stress analysis of usage and environmental conditions with failure mechanism models to perform a durability simulation that identifies failure susceptibilities and calculated lifetime reliability behavior.
