What Do I Need to Detect Failures?
Kirk and Fred discuss how to know when a failure occurs during a stress test to find operational and destruct limits.
In some cases, the failure and component causing the failure are very obvious when “the smoke comes out”.
In other cases, the product being tested has a performance degradation under increased stress that can be used as discriminators for ensuring reliability and quality during product development and manufacturing.
They also discuss how some fundamental technology limitations of common operational monitors, such as a display LCD, does not have to limit the stress to the more typically more capable circuit board assembly.
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss
- Some stress testing failures are dramatic and easy to observe
- Inherent stress limitations of technology and overcoming those limits for detection
- How operation characteristics under stress can be used for reliability discriminators
