2017 Annual Design for Reliability Conference: Implementing Physics of Failure in Electronic Products and Systems

Physics of Failure is a hot topic in electronics design today. But what is it and why is it so important?

Physics of Failure is a technique used in the practice of Design for Reliability that leverages the knowledge and understanding of the processes and mechanisms that induce failure to predict reliability and improve product performance.

In electronics design, as products become smaller, more complex and are introduced to more challenging environments, reliability becomes critical.

At the 2017 Annual Design for Reliability Conference in historic Baltimore, Maryland, industry leading experts will discuss the challenges facing electronics design across different markets and how the application of Physics of Failure based techniques can improve reliability, product quality and overall customer satisfaction.

During this one-day conference you will meet electronics design experts in the fields of aerospace, automotive, battery, data storage, defense, semiconductor and many more. Hear what DfR Solutions experts Dr. Craig Hillman, Dr. Nathan Blattau and others have to say about the future of reliable electronics design. And don’t miss the Keynote presentation from renowned electronics manufacturing and packaging expert Greg Caswell.

Discounted room rates are available at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel until February 17, 2017 (subject to availability) with this link: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/events/start.action?id=1701041030&key=206BBD43
