Jumpstart Your Reliability Verification with Foundry-Supported Rule Decks

For many, formal reliability verification is a new process. Foundry-qualified and foundry-maintained reliability rule decks enable design and IP companies alike to establish baseline robustness and reliability criteria without committing extensive time and resources to the creation and support of proprietary verification solutions. In addition, as reliability verification needs expand, customer demand drives the development and qualification of new and augmented reliability rules.August 30, 2018

Maximize uptime and optimize maintenance with AMS

Yukinobu Hayashi, Senior Field Applications Engineer from CyberOptics, explains the application uses of the WaferSense® Auto Multi Sensor™ (AMS) for Leveling, Vibration, and Relative Humidity (RH) that facilitates maximizing uptime and optimizes maintenance. The combination of these attributes in a thin wafer shaped all-in-one wireless sensor, provides engineers the ability to acquire highly repeatable measurements of tilt, vibration, and humidity while under a vacuum and without venting a chamber. The quantitative numeric results give engineers an objective basis for comparisons, and analysis that can be reproducible across multiple users over extended periods of time. June 13, 2018
