Thermo-Mechanical and Mechanical Reliability of Electronics

By DfR Solutions

Most designers of electronics are electrical engineers. Which means that they are really good at making electronics do electrical things (turn on, rectify voltage, play music, etc.). However, increasingly designers must consider the influence of the external environment if they wish to design things that are mobile, operate just about anywhere, or be energy efficient (which seem to be the three major trends in electronics today).


This webinar will introduce the concept of thermo-mechanical and mechanical reliability to the electronics designer. We will discuss how changes in temperature or the application of mechanical loads (vibration / drop) can cause failure in electronics, discuss some basic design rules and mitigations the electronics industry has adopted over the years, and briefly touch on more sophisticated techniques for predicting the durability of electronic designs when subjected to these kinds of environments. Case studies will be used as straightforward training tools.

What You Will Learn

The attendee will come away with knowledge that will help her/him select the appropriate electronic parts, place the parts in the right location on the printed board, select the right mitigations when necessary, and determine when simulation and modeling BEFORE testing provides a strong return on investment.
