At Silicon Cert Laboratories, understanding the applications and results of a particular reliability test comes from having years of experience with testing along with a solid engineering background. SCL's staff consists of a variety of engineers whose backgrounds include R&D, manufacturing, product engineering, process engineering, and quality. Following test standards and reading textbooks cannot replace the wealth of knowledge obtained from conducting testing and interpreting results. In addition, the “art” of testing plays an important role when analyzing devices, such as performed during mechanical shock and vibration. The opening and closing of a test chamber door can readily be done by most, but it is the ability to interpret the results or project future developments that sets SCL apart from those with only knowledge and limited experience. Since knowledge (and experience) is power, SCL’s staff can put that power to work for you.
