Is There a Short Reliability Design Problem?
Kirk and Fred discussing the issue of long term reliability, intrinsic wear-out, and the rapid improvement of new features and benefits that motivate retirement of older devices such as in smartphones.
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss designed life and the rapid technological obsolescence of many electronics products.
- The early days of smartphones had replaceable batteries, the part most likely to wear out in 2-3 years, but not anymore.
- Mechanical components such as connectors do wear, and eventually may cause failure.
- Long-term reliability is needed in energy generation systems for ROI, and prognostics and health management are useful for reliability monitoring and maintenance.
