Seminar: HALT – Product Design and Reliability

Friday, March 3, 2017, 9:00am–3:00pm | NTS Chicago

Do you need to know how much margin your product has beyond the specification limits? Is your design too close to the limit or possibly over-engineered?

For those responsible with designing products–ensuring the quality and overall reliability–these questions must be answered before their products go to market. Equally important is having certified that their products have met its specified reliability requirements while avoiding delays and incurring additional costs.

Register for the HALT Product Design and Reliability Seminar

Join engineers and technicians from our NTS Chicago facility as they host an all-day, interactive seminar on HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Test) covering the basics, the benefits and its relationship with your product's reliability. Additionally, they will introduce other available tools designed to prevent infant mortality (e.g. HASS - Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) as well as share with you, answers to some of the most frequently asked questions on product reliability testing.

Key Topics

  • What is HALT and why do you need it?
  • Basic fundamentals and benefits including product reliability
  • Parameters of HALT profiles
  • Chamber, fixtures, and sample size considerations
  • Introduction to other available tools designed to prevent early life failures (e.g. HASS)

Cost to attend is $99 and space is limited.

Live demonstrations, lab tour are provided along with refreshments and lunch.

This course is designed primarily for a Design Engineer but could be useful to anyone wanting to discover the robustness (or weakness) of their product.

About HALT Testing

Products that are tested utilizing the HALT method will be stressed to its operating limits, and if desired, even to its destructive limits. Through a step-wise approach, products will be exposed to high and low temperatures, thermal shock, vibration and finally, a combination of temperature and vibration to stress a design to its limits.

After conducting a HALT test program, customers are able to:

  • Identify their product’s weakest link, failure modes and operating/destructive limits
  • Improve reliability by modifying previous designs
  • Compare their designs with competitors
