Highly Accelerated Stress Screening For Air-cooled Switching Power Supplies
Highly Accelerated Stress Screening, or HASS, has been established as a best practice for assuring fielded electronic product reliability. HASS is especially productive in power conversion equipment, where component stress levels are typically more aggressive than found in other products. TDI has been instrumental in establishing HASS as a viable, high value-add production process.
This White Paper is the first in a series of documents outlining this process. Background information is provided regarding electronic equipment failure mechanisms and the predictive models that can be used to describe them.
