  • You Will Learn:
    Thermal events in electronics can be described as events where electronics, and potentially the environment surrounding them, are damaged in a manner that results in unplanned heat, smoke, flames, or damage while in operation. Why do thermal events like this occur? They result from a number of factors related to improper choices and variation in:
  • Design
  • PCB materials & construction
  • Input protection
  • Environment
  • Components
  • Quality
  • Electrical Overstress & ESD
  • Customer error / Mistake prevention
  • Sabotage
  • Unknown reasons

This webtorial is design to walk you through the process of performing analysis on thermal event failures in the field. Analysis techniques and case studies will be covered along with some prevention and protections strategies.

The course is designed for technicians and engineers working in design, manufacturing, quality, and field failure analysis.
