The recently suggested probabilistic design for reliability (PDfR) concept of electronics and photonics (EP) products is based on 1) highly focused and highly costeffective failure oriented accelerated testing (FOAT), aimed at understanding the physics of the anticipated failures and at quantifying, on the probabilistic basis, the outcome of FOAT conducted(More)

External electric leads, soldered into plated-through-holes (PTHs) of a printed circuit board (PCB), provide, in addition to electrical interconnection, also mechanical support for heavy (high mass) electronic components mounted on the board. The leads can possibly break, if the PCB support contour is subjected to extensive vibrations that are being(More)

This paper contains a brief review of the literature on the dynamic response of micro-electronic systems to shocks and vibrations, as well as an extension, in which a criterion of a quality of a shock protection system is suggested. The concept is illustrated using an example of a nanowire "brush" as a possible means for shock protection of a portable(More)
