Selecting and using the correct materials for a particular application is vital to the success of electronics technologies. But these same materials often cause product performance issues if appropriate reliability testing is not administered.
Our team has broad expertise in the fundamental properties of semiconductors, metals, ceramics and polymers. They can identify and perform the right combination of material and chemical analysis, mechanical testing, PCB testing, electrical characterization and reliability testing to find weaknesses, quantify design margins and comply with industry specifications like IPC TM-650.
This depth of knowledge coupled with extensive material testing capabilities (including maintainability testing and PCB reliability testing) assures test reliability, plus serves as the basis for material testing and qualification solutions for an array of electronic materials, including:
Using our industry knowledge and experience, DfR Solutions can plan and tailor material test and qualification plans to meet your specific needs. Contact us for more information.
“DfR has been a valuable resource…”
DfR has been a valuable resource not only for failure analysis, but also for mechanical analysis and part qualification testing. When I share the DfR reports with my managers and peers they also appreciate the expertise, timeliness and professionalism of the reports. I have had multiple co-workers from different groups within the company approach me about contacting DfR for help. I look forward to continuing to partner with DfR as I support projects at AEI, leveraging their strengths in FA, mechanical analysis, part qualification, BOM scrub, etc.

“DfR has become a champion for our product”
Nihon Superior has had great success with its patented lead-free SnCuNiGe solder (SN100C), first in Japan, then in Asia, and we continued that success in Europe. In America, the unique features of SN100C attracted a high level of interest as the electronics industry found itself facing the challenge of going lead-free. We realized, however, that to turn that interest into business we would need help in addressing special requirements of the American market. DfR Solutions had the skill set that could generate the data we needed. They drew up a test program to characterize alloy performance and provide the input to a life model that potential customers can use as a basis for designing their assemblies around solder joints made with SN100C. We have been pleasantly surprised to find that the relationship with DfR goes beyond that of just a test house. Without compromising their scientific integrity, DfR has become a champion for our product, looking for opportunities that they encounter in their wide-ranging interactions with the global electronics industry.
