Sherlock Automated Design Analysis™ Software’s suite of reliability calculators quickly and effectively highlights potential risks for your electronic components. While the full application enables an automated, system-level assessment of your entire PCB, the calculators presented online provide insight into Sherlock’s capabilities by providing predictions for various individual components for a variety of failure modes.

Capacitor Flex Cracking Calculator

Capacitor Flex Cracking

This calculator predicts flex cracking probability in chip capacitors and allows users to adjust design parameters to prevent this type of failure.


Solder Joint Fatigue

This calculator implements the Blattau model to predict the number of cycles to failure due to temperature cycling prescribed by the thermal profile defined.


Plated Through Hole (PTH) Fatigue

This calculator computes the mean fatigue life for printed circuit board materials based on material type and thickness, PTH size and thermal environment.

Component Vibration Fatigue

Component Vibration Fatigue

This calculator computes the cycles to failure for various component types based on the expected vibration environment, the given component and PCB characteristics.

Unit Conversion Calculator

Unit Conversion

This calculator converts length, area, temperature, time period and force values from one unit of measurement to another.
