Would you like to minimize your warranty claims, reduce field failures and minimize time to market while increasing customer confidence in the reputation of your products? Our HALT/HASS testing services can help. Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) and Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS) are two methods utilized for early determination of potential problems your products may encounter during the course of their life time.
The HALT process employs combined thermal and triaxial (often referred to as 6 degrees of freedom) vibration stress to rapidly uncover design issues and potential defects. Early discovery and remediation of these problems is vital not only to the success of your products but for the reduction in failure and warranty costs over the long term.
HASS testing speeds the discovery of latent defects in manufacturing and thus reduces associated failures. The process utilizes similar equipment to the HALT process, and the development of a HASS profile requires previous HALT results, as well as other data and related validation information. In addition to identifying defects in existing products, HASS testing can also determine the impact alternative components will have on your product design and durability.
