Reliability evaluation of electronic component in military vehicles under thermal exposure and thermal cycling by accelerated test method
The majority of electronic components are susceptible to damage at high temperatures (overheating) and their reliability is affected by its operating temperature. The temperature can basically dictate the effective performance as well as the lifetime or life cycle of the electronic components. In addition, the reliability of electronic components is not only affected temperatures but also by changes in temperature over a period of time (thermal cycles). This article describes the methodology how to prepare, perform and evaluate the accelerated reliability compliance test of electronic components in military vehicles under thermal exposure and thermal cycling.
