Qualification Testing Planning


  As products approach the design verification stage, decisions on appropriate pre-qualification tests must be made. The question arises as to which stress tests are the most appropriate to complete the design phase. Considerations relative to the product that influence what tests and sample sizes may be appropriate include its construction, mechanical and electrical properties, unit costs and schedule. After the design phase and prior to production, the choice of what qualification tests must be performed also must be decided upon.

External factors that are relevant to what tests are to be performed include the markets that are to be targeted, requirements required by potential customers and universal specifications such as JEDEC, Telcordia and AEC.

If uncertain about which stress-reliability tests would be appropriate for your devices, the staff at Silicon Cert Laboratories can assist in formulating a battery of tests that would provide useful information to assess the device’s robustness. With our staff having had a variety of roles including design, product engineering, process engineering, manufacturing and quality, our experience has become an asset that is becoming more difficult to duplicate in addition to being much appreciated by our clients.
