DfR Solutions Reliability Designed and Delivered

Traditional product testing methods consume a great deal of time and money, and if qualification uncovers a design or material issue, launch targets can be missed and substantial market share lost.

DfR Solutions uses reliability physics and state-of-the-art software for efficient and cost-effective PCB simulation – a realistic alternative to traditional testing that accelerates simulation and modeling through:

Finite Element Analysis (Mechanical Simulation)

The DfR Solutions team of FEA experts uses the latest versions of Abaqus, Ansys and NX Nastran CAE to accurately assess the most relevant failure mechanisms in electronic packaging – plasticity, creep and crack propagation – and review appropriate material properties using our comprehensive database, or define them by performing characterization to capture a range of properties,including thermal expansion, modulus, plasticity and creep.

Thermal Analysis

Temperature is one of the most critical drivers of product reliability as almost all wear-out failure mechanisms are influenced by it. DfR Solutions introduces thermal assessment and analysis into reliability models to help clients assess temperature rise on simple PCB structures, identify critical parameters for heat sink operations and develop cost-effective thermal management strategies in addition to or instead of primary cooling methods for electronic products and systems, like conduction, convection and radiation.

Circuit simulation

Minor variations occur in circuit design and circuit board components manufacture that can affect performance and cause your project to be out of spec. DfR Solutions uses statistical analysis and circuit simulators to predict the behavior of an electronic circuit in a real environment, reducing costly field failure and allowing you to make necessary changes without having to build and test actual boards.


Simulation And Review

The first place I go is DfR Solutions.

When I need robust third-party review of my most critical hardware designs, the first place I go is DfR Solutions.
