Why Did I Write a HALT Book
Kirk discusses the reason he wrote a book, co-authored with John Paschkewitz, on basic HALT and HASS methods along with new developments and opportunities to use HALT methods for digital software-hardware failure issues.
Join Kirk as he discusses some of the ideas that are included in his book “Next Generation HALT and HASS: Robust Design of Electronics and Systems”.
- Thermal HALT has been demonstrated to be able to stimulate field software failures on digital systems.
- The many difficulties of getting real failure data to be published
- A request for all to read a paper from the 2013 RAMS from the US ARMY and CALCE (link in the show notes below) clearly shows why “Reliability Prediction is a Misleading Approach” for reliability development.
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.
Here is a link to Kirk’s book co-authored with John J. Paschkewitz available from Amazon “Next Generation HALT and HASS: Robust Design of Electronics and Systems”
Here is the link to the US ARMY/CALCE PAPER presented at the 2013 RAMS conference event mentioned in this podcast– “Reliability Prediction – A Continued Reliance on a Misleading Approach” . This is a government document that is in the public domain and should be distributed a read by any engineer that believes failure prediction methodology is useful or beneficial during product development.
