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.

Who Really Owns the PCB Layout? Part 2

02/07/2018 | Paul Taubman, Nine Dot Connects
In Part 1 of this series, Paul Taubman made the bold statement that the PCB layout is just as much a mechanical effort as it is an electrical one. In Part 2, he threads the needle, explaining why he believes that a PCB truly a mechatronic design, and why mechanical engineers may be more prepared to take on the PCB layout.
