Consumers expect modern electronics to provide increased functionality and still endure drops and vibrations. Although cooling and thermal problems constitute a significant source of electronics failure, vibration fatigue accounts for 22% of electronic equipment failures (according to BCC research).
How do you ensure that, when designing for robust product performance, the sensitive electronics inside your product survive regular use, or as we call it, operational vibrations? How do you virtually validate the optimization of your designs before production, increase quality and predict a more efficient and faster development process?
Watch this webinar to learn how to combine simulation and test to increase simulation fidelity, shorten development time and cost and pass verification with your first final prototype.
Performing real-life shock and vibrations testing for inputs to simulation is helpful. Which events and how often do they occur in the device or product lifetime. You can measure vibration scenarios using sensors and gather data to use as inputs for simulation or shaker tests.
Assure the structural integrity of electronics components and systems at an early stage in the development lifecycle via combined insights of test and simulation. Test and simulation engineers should work collaboratively throughout the development process.
Lacking thorough simulation and test can result in more costly re-spins and significantly delayed time to market. Siloed ECAD and MCAD disciplines hamper product development processes. Advanced simulation capabilities are no longer enough. To improve time-to-market and reduce respins for products, companies need to enhance connectivity from authoring systems to simulation and ultimately physical testing, enabling a complete digital thread.
Simulation and testing software can thoroughly investigate drop and vibration-induced stresses in electronics. Simulation and testing software gives confidence before fabrication that designs will be robust enough for the intended application and that products will not fail prematurely.
Business Development Manager Mechanical Industries
Frank Demesmaeker graduated in 1994 as Civil Engineer from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) and started working at LMS International – now Siemens - in a technical support role for the Benelux area customers. Over the years, he has build up in-depth knowledge and practical experience in noise and vibration issues from worldwide customers, both from a technical, commercial and marketing point of view. Frank is currently helping in promoting and tuning the test applications into markets like energy, medical, consumer goods, ship, educational institutes and the broader mechanical machinery market.
