Physics of Failure Methods for Building Reliability Into Products by Dr. Abhijit Dasgupta  Cost $300 per person 3 hours

This course offers an introductory understanding of some of the key engineering accelerated test techniques needed to develop reliable electronic products.  Participants are presented with various physics of failure methods to design and test for reliability.

Participants will….
•   Learn how products really fail and understand key reliability issues.
•   Become acquainted with the failure modes and mechanisms associated with various electronic devices and assemblies
•   Determine the stresses associated with the qualification of reliable electronic equipment and examine techniques to address problems of reliability
•   Investigate the usage and applicability of reliability standards and handbooks.

Webinar Outline:

Abhijit Dasgupta, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maryland, has conducted over 20 years of research on Physics of Failure (PoF) approaches for developing reliable, complex multi-functional systems that perform electronic, photonic, and mechanical functions.  This research, sponsored by a consortium of leading electronics builders/users at the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE), focuses on industry-relevant projects in reliability assurance of electronic systems, MEMS, sensors, actuators, and ‘smart’ composite systems.  He has consulted for many major electronics manufacturers, published over 250 journal articles and conference papers on these topics, presented over 35 short workshops nationally and internationally, served on the editorial boards of three different international journals, organized several national and international conferences, and received seven awards for his contributions in materials engineering research and education.
