Mentor Graphics White Paper: Reduce PCB Failure Rates


Reading time ( words)

Industry statistics indicate field failure rates of up to 15–20% in the first year for newly launched electronic products, resulting in warranty claims and high levels of field returns. In harsh environments, fatigue can be responsible for up to 20% of these product failures. 

Analyzing vibration and acceleration is vital to preventing product failures due to fatigue. However, current methods of analysis, such as physical HALT, are often too costly and time-consuming to conduct for every new product. 

The new Xpedition Design for Reliability (DfR) functionality empowers design teams to simulate vibration and acceleration effects throughout the design creation process to detect issues early, improving design quality and decreasing time-to-market for electronic products. 

Read Mentor Graphics' new white paper to learn how to reduce product failures and ensure a successful product release.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Mark Thompson

05/12/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I-Connect007 Columnist Mark Thompson of Out of the Box Manufacturing has been in CAM engineering for decades, and he’s also worked as a PCB designer, so we knew he would have a few things to say about working in a vacuum. As he explains, the designer isn’t the only stakeholder in the process who feels like he’s working inside the dust bag of a Hoover upright.
