Our engineers have the capability to accelerate the aging of electronics systems to predict long term life. Our aging chambers can expose electronic assemblies to challenges such as mixed corrosive gases, thermal cycling, and moisture, while monitoring the operation of the electronics to determine exactly when failure occurs. We have used this approach to evaluate the long term reliability of lead free solder materials, and developed methodologies for predicting the reliability of dormant missile systems.
