Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss standard environmental test suites such as MIL-STD 810 which describe many environmental tests that can be applied depending on the end-use conditions.
- Many of these standards include the stresses and duration, they do not define what can be considered a failure.
- Many of the standard tests do not use stresses very much more intense than the expected end-use field stresses and therefore do not provide acceleration to find many latent design weaknesses.
- Many of the standard environmental tests can be converted to HALT type testing by increasing stress levels until a operational failure or destruction happens and determining how to make it stronger to the fundamental limit of technology.
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.
