Product qualification & degradation of steel toe ESD footwear
2016 Edition, September 1, 2016 - EOS/ESD Association

It was found that two vendors' steel toe ESD footwear technical specifications were inaccurate. Two of the three steel toe ESD footwear provided by vendors failed the resistance measurement as per ANSI/ESD STM9.1 and STM97.1....

Prognostics-Based LED Qualification Using Similarity-Based Statistical Measure with RVM Regression Model
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are widely used for general lighting and display applications. As the demand for LEDs has grown, the need to quickly qualify them has emerged. To address this issue, this paper introduces a prognostics-based qualification methodology using an efficient relevance...

Prognostics-based product qualification
2009 Edition, March 1, 2009 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Qualification is the process of demonstrating that a product is capable of meeting or exceeding specified requirements. The specified requirements are expected to depend on the final product and its specific life cycle application conditions. In this paper, a...

Fusion prognostics-based qualification of microelectronic devices
2014 Edition, June 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The rapid evolution of electronic products has resulted in numerous choices for customers. This has made for intense competition between manufacturers to reduce costs and minimize the time to market for their products. One bottle-neck in getting products to market is the...

IEC TR 61244-4:2019 - Determination of long-term radiation ageing in polymers - Part 4: Effects of different temperatures and dose rates under radiation conditions
September 25, 2019 - IEC - International Electrotechnical Commission

IEC TR 61244-4:2019(E) provides general guidance for the evaluation/verification of electrical insulation materials (EIM) and electrical insulation systems (EIS) intended to be used in types of equipment exposed to ionizing radiation. Beside sensors, actuators/motors as well as plugs...

Supplied products reliability comparison using degradation testing
2016 Edition, January 1, 2016 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This article proposes a qualification methodology that allows to differentiate suppliers by monitoring their products during test phases, based on the statistical quality control approach. To ensure a better quality of estimation, Wiener increments are used as much as possible....

Mission profile recorder: An aging monitor for hard events
2016 Edition, April 1, 2016 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This work demonstrates the fundamental aspects of Mission Profile Recording as an alternative to intrusive, aging monitoring systems to cope with oxide breakdown and electromigration degradation mechanisms. A functional prototype is designed, implemented and fully tested on several...

ASTM B845-97(2018) - Standard Guide for Mixed Flowing Gas (MFG) Tests for Electrical Contacts
November 1, 2018 - ASTM International

4.1 Preservation of a conducting surface on electrical contact is vital to the continued functioning of such contacts. Contamination of the surface with insulating layers formed by corrosion processes is one potential hazard. Laboratory testing of contacts in MFG tests...

A Review of Prognostic Techniques for High-Power White LEDs
2017 Edition, Volume 32, August 1, 2017 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

High-power white light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have attracted much attention due to their versatility in a variety of applications and growing demand in markets such as general lighting, automotive lamps, communications devices, and medical devices. In particular, the need for high...

Degradation in PV encapsulation transmittance: An interlaboratory study towards a climate-specific test
2015 Edition, June 1, 2015 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Reduced optical transmittance of encapsulants resulting from ultraviolet (UV) degradation has frequently been identified as a cause of decreased PV module performance through the life of service in the field. The present module safety and qualification standards,...
