Microtek Laboratories China Adds High-Voltage HAST CAF Test

Reading time ( words)

Microtek has added high-voltage testing capability for HAST-based CAF testing. The HAST chamber's ability to maintain 85% relative humidity at temperatures over 100°C at up to 1,000 V generates the toughest CAF test environment currently possible for base material and PCB reliability evaluation.

"We have successfully completed two high-voltage CAF tests in our HAST chambers. The automotive and transportation industries are continuing to push the limits of current test technology in an effort to further accelerate and understand the reliability of base materials and PCBs. Microtek has, at the same time, continued to invest in equipment and technology to service these demands," said Bob Neves, chairman and CTO of Microtek.

Microtek's commitment to automotive and transportation testing also includes the use of 10 thermal shock chambers equipped for single hole or daisy chain reliability testing, along with 28 humidity and HAST chambers equipped with 256 channels of CAF/ECM/SIR testing capability up to 2,000 VDC.

Reliability Takes on a New Urgency

09/05/2018 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
Consumers wanted a reliable car that wouldn’t break down on the road; a computer that wouldn’t crash; a phone network that wouldn’t drop our calls; the plane we were hurtling across the sky in to stay in the air and land safely, with the wheels down. In retrospect, those seem rather simple wants, and the industry certainly wants to deliver.

The Sum of All Parts: Factors of Reliability

08/31/2018 | Sam Sangani, PNC Inc.
A popular definition of reliability is “The quality of being trustworthy or of performing consistently well.” Upfront engineering is of utmost importance in developing a design that will endure its intended life cycle. On the other hand, the manufacturing of that design is just as critical.
