Discover the benefits of vibration and drop analysis early in electronics design.
June 21, 2022
Modern electronics are expected to provide increasing functionality whilst still being able to endure drop and vibration. Although cooling and thermal problems are a major source of electronics failure, vibration fatigue can result in greater and very costly re-spins and significantly delayed time to market.
How do you make sure that, when designing for robust product performance the sensitive electronics inside your product survive regular use, or as we call it, operational vibrations? How do you virtually validate the optimization of your designs before production, increase quality and predict a more efficient and faster development process? Drop and vibration induced stresses in electronics can be thoroughly investigated with simulation and testing software. This gives confidence, prior to fabrication, that designs will be robust enough for the intended application and that products will not fail prematurely.
Product development processes are often hampered by siloed ECAD and MCAD disciplines. Advanced simulation capabilities are no longer enough. To improve time-to-market for products companies need to improve connectivity from authoring systems right through to simulation and ultimately physical testing, enabling a complete digital thread.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How to combine simulation and test to increase simulation fidelity, shorten development time, cost and pass verification with your first final prototype.
- How to acquire real-life vibrations as input to simulation or to an accelerated shaker test.
- How to accelerate innovation by predicting structural performance earlier in the development.
