Creating Reliable and Manufacturable RF Designs

September 13 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Electronic system demands for smaller size, lighter weight, lower power consumption and lower cost (also known as SWAP-C) are being met through design, development and production of heterogeneous high density packages, system in package (SIP), and system on chip (SOC).   Complex monolithic chips containing high number of semiconductor devices present unique challenges when it comes to determining reliability.  Reliability is designed in by taking numerous device physics properties into account.  Many of the effects such as activation energy, electro migration,…

The Genesis of Reliability Engineering aka “Certainty of Operations”

October 11 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The first two individuals to introduce reliability engineering in their work were: Dr. William Channing (1820 -1901), inventor of Boston’s fire alarm system over 160 years ago, and Fred Stark Pearson (1861-1915), chief engineer of the world’s first and largest public transit system of Boston.  Channing had carefully examined and specified requirements for communicating fire emergencies, coining the phrase ‘unerring certainty of operations’. Channing then incorporated certain design features to guard against circuit interruptions and false alarms. These included redundant…
