D&E Event 2017


On the 12th of October 2017 the 19th edition of the Design Automation & Embedded Systems Event takes place at 1931 Congrescentrum Brabanthallen in Den Bosch. Due to growing demand from visitors and exhibitors the first edition in Belgium will be organised this year on October 11th 2017 at Technopolis, Mechelen. This annual event allows developers and applicants of embedded systems to enrich their knowledge and share the latest technologies and visions with peers. There is focus in the conference program and at the trading area to specific themes: “Internet of Things, Electronic Design /Production and Embedded design challenges”. Exhibitors inform visitors about possible improvements in the field of hardware, software and testing.

Title: Reliability of electronics: a Physics-of-Failure based system approach
Abstract: A typical Printed Board Assembly may contain up to a few thousand components and ten times as many interconnections. Therefore, assessing the reliability of a PBA is not straigthforward. The traditional approach suffers from a few fundamental flaws especially the assumption of a constant failure rate. Physics-of-Failure (PoF) analysis provides quantified models for failure modes such as solder joint fatigue and capacitor degradation. Unfortunately, analyzing even a simple PBA with PoF is a challenge. In this presentation, the basic steps of a comprehensive PoF analysis of a PBA are discussed as well as a pragmatic way of gradual implementation.
