Reliability by design: CAE techniques for electronic components and systems
Describes a method tested on three practical circuits--two switch mode power supplies and one motordrive--to use in reliably assessing the design process of electronic systems and circuits, focusing on high-volume consumer electronics. Coverage includes the development of susceptibility models for practical components such as the medium power Schottky diode, a high-voltage bipolar transistor and an integrated circuit; the use of stressor/susceptibility models in analyzing practical circuits; a technique for using stressor/susceptibility interaction in circuit optimization and much more.
