Reliability Test

Whether you’re designing new equipment or modifying existing equipment, with accelerated reliability test techniques you can get a reliable product to market faster.

Using our technical expertise, coupled with new HALT/HASS techniques, we can cost-effectively put your product through its paces to find its performance and production screening limitations. These new techniques use environmental stresses to stimulate failures rather than simulating use environments. The focus of testing is to rapidly produce failures in a meaningful way, analyze them and suggest corrective action to increase product robustness and durability.

The purpose of Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) is to optimize product reliability by identifying the functional and destructive limits of your product.

You benefit in two ways from this experience:

The purpose of Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS) is to expose your product to optimized production screens without effecting product reliability.

This means you can:

SEA can make HALT/HASS work for you because of our combined experience in designing for reliability, product reliability analysis, product thermal analysis, ESS planning and implementation, HALT and HASS planning and implementation, reliability growth & demonstration testing, MIL-Spec environmental testing and failure analysis.

SEA provides complete end-to-end HALT / HASS test fixtures solutions including board level, power supply and system level solutions.

Our text fixtures team will help you to:

  1. Develop a concept.
  2. Provide a design.
  3. Fabricate it.
  4. Verify its operation.

Additionally, we will:

  • Increased customer satisfaction
  • Reduced field service costs
  • Lower warranty/ liability costs
  • Increased first pass production yields

"SEA is capable of addressing reliability issues from both a design and management perspective. Not only can they perform analysis to a customers requirement, but more importantly, they can suggest design changes or other methods of developing basic reliability data to meet a particularly difficult objective."
