SOR 163 How many stresses should you add to your HALT
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss how to choose what stresses to use in applying HALT. As discussed in previous Speaking of Reliability episodes, understanding the types of environmental stresses that a product may be subjected to during its use must be considered to make the most of HALT evaluations.
- All products have a breaking point, especially in mobile electronics, and therefore the reason for HALT to discover how strong it can be made with standard materials.
- What stresses should be added or combined with the standard HALT stresses of vibration and thermal stresses.
- What new stresses should be added to HALT as product categories such as water resistant smartphones.
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability. Where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques, to field data analysis approaches.
