Failure Analysis: A Practical Guide for Manufacturers of Electronic Components and Systems

Buy

Failure analysis is the preferred method to investigate product or process reliability and to ensure optimum performance of electrical components and systems. The physics-of-failure approach is the only internationally accepted solution for continuously improving the reliability of materials, devices and processes. The models have been developed from the physical and chemical phenomena that are responsible for degradation or failure of electronic components and materials and now replace popular distribution models for failure mechanisms such as Weibull or lognormal.

Reliability engineers need practical orientation around the complex procedures involved in failure analysis. This guide acts as a tool for all advanced techniques, their benefits and vital aspects of their use in a reliability programme. Using twelve complex case studies, the authors explain why failure analysis should be used with electronic components, when implementation is appropriate and methods for its successful use.

Inside you will find detailed coverage on:

  • a synergistic approach to failure modes and mechanisms, along with reliability physics and the failure analysis of materials, emphasizing the vital importance of cooperation between a product development team involved
  • the reasons why failure analysis is an important tool for improving yield and reliability by corrective actions
  • the design stage, highlighting the ‘concurrent engineering' approach and DfR (Design for Reliability) 
  • failure analysis during fabrication, covering reliability monitoring, process monitors and package reliability 
  • reliability resting after fabrication, including reliability assessment at this stage and corrective actions 
  • a large variety of methods, such as electrical methods, thermal methods, optical methods, electron microscopy, mechanical methods, X-Ray methods, spectroscopic, acoustical, and laser methods
  • new challenges in reliability testing, such as its use in microsystems and nanostructures

This practical yet comprehensive reference is useful for manufacturers and engineers involved in the design, fabrication and testing of electronic components, devices, ICs and electronic systems, as well as for users of components in complex systems wanting to discover the roots of the reliability flaws for their products.

Pattern Recognition with Neural Networks in C++
Pattern Recognition with Neural Networks in C++

Why do we feel a need to write a book about pattern recognition when many excellent books are already available on this classical topic? The answer lies in the depth of our coverage of neural networks as natural pattern classifiers and clusterers. Artificial neural network computing has emerged as an extremely active research area with a central...

FPGAs: Instant Access
FPGAs: Instant Access
Various aspects of PLDs, ASICs, and FPGAs will be discussed later in more detail. For now, we need only be aware that PLDs are devices whose i nternal architecture is predetermined by the manufacturer, but are created in such a way that they can be configured by engineers in the field to perform a variety of different functions. In comparison to an...
Computational Intelligence: An Introduction
Computational Intelligence: An Introduction
Can computers be intelligent?

This question causes even more debate than the definitions of intelligence do.

Computational intelligence is the study of adaptive mechanisms to enable or facilitate intelligent behaviour in complex and changing environments. As such, computational intelligence encompasses artificial neural networks,...
