Ensuring that a product does not fail in the field is top priority. IC environmental testing consist of endurance tests designed to subject products to conditions such as extreme temperatures, extreme temperature variations, and moisture-condensing or moisture-saturated environments. Temperature Cycling, for example, can fatigue joints of different materials causing them to fail. Other endurance tests such as HAST and Bias Aging are useful in accelerating existing failure mechanisms thereby simulating long-term, real-life operations in a span of hours or days.
Silicon Cert Laboratories offers the below in-house endurance/environmental tests to standards such as JEDEC, MIL-STD, Telcordia and the Automotive Electronics Council and are experts in Environmental Testing.
