How to Qualify Your Batteries to Prevent Failures & Thermal Events
Instructor: Vidyu Challa, PhD, Technical Director, DfR Solutions
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The rising demand for Internet of things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications makes battery power an absolute necessity. However, reports about lithium-ion batteries exploding and catching fire continue to draw the public’s attention. How do you balance the need for power, size, cost, and time-to-market, while still avoiding being the lead story on the evening news?
Is it enough to qualify a cell manufacturer according to industry standards? The answer is that the majority of compliance-based testing is related to abuse tolerance. However, the vast majority of field failures do not occur under abuse scenarios, but happen under normal operating conditions due to manufacturing flaws or design and system tolerance issues that cause internal shorts. Internal shorts are unfortunately not mitigated by safety electronics.

The Design for Reliability Conference is emerging as one of the most important ones for the aerospace, automotive, defense, and other high performance (ADHP) electronics industries. It’s a place to meet some of the most knowledgeable and accomplished professionals in the fields of design for reliability, and reliability analysis. Attendees will learn about the latest methods, requirements, and industry standards; including the use of the Sherlock Automated Design Analysis software. Sherlock can help ADHP designers and reliability professionals in so many ways. It’s not just a one-for-one replacement for existing methods; it can help us do things that the existing methods can’t do. I highly recommend the Design for Reliability Conference for anyone who wants to be at 'the front of the pack.'

DfR Solution’s Design for Reliability Conference is the place to meet electronics industry experts from across every major industry. At this conference you will learn about the newest tools and techniques to efficiently design reliable, cost-effective systems. You will also learn how others are applying DfR Solutions’ tools to address some very challenging problems.It is one of the rare opportunities to listen to experts in other industries and to socialize during the conference giving you the opportunity to follow-up with the speaker and other attendees. I was very impressed with the variety of subjects and the caliber of the speakers at the 2017 Conference. It is a 'must attend' event for all electronics reliability specialists.
