Design For Qualification
As the need for ultra-reliable electronic equipment increases, especially
in life -critical applications, there will be an increased need to implement
rigorous qualification procedures can no longer be based on a foundation
of tests. Equipment must now be designed in a manner in which failure
behavior and interactions can be modeled and audited. Furthermore,
the equipment must be designed such that the reliability does not directly
depend on parameters that cannot be adequately determined. This paper
presents a design methodology called "design for qualification" based on
the concept of designing electronic equipment to ensure rigorous qualification.
