The importance of Early Life Reliability

Too many companies ignore the fact that most electronic products will have some form of Early Life failure rate which exceeds the expected average Intrinsic failure rate during the same period. They also do not realise that stimulating the early life defects require different types of stress testing as the defect mechanisms can be completely different. The end result is higher warranty failure rates than expected and very unhappy customers who perceive the quality to be poor due to the fact the product fails at an early stage.  Reliability Solutions can provide the answer by advising on appropriate early life accelerated stress testing to avoid the pitfalls of poor early life reliability
