Board-level solder joint reliability is very critical for handheld electronic products during drop impact. In this study, board-level drop test and finite element method (FEM) are adopted to investigate failure modes and failure mechanisms of lead-free solder joint under drop impact. In order to make all ball grid array (BGA) packages on the same test board(More)
With the development of the condition-based maintenance techniques and the consequent requirement for good machine learning methods, new challenges arise in unsupervised learning. In the real-world situations , due to the relevant features that could exhibit the real machine condition are often unknown as priori, condition monitoring systems based on(More)

Electrostatic micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) is a special branch with a wide range of applications in sensing and actuating devices in MEMS. This paper provides a survey and analysis of the electrostatic force of importance in MEMS, its physical model, scaling effect, stability, nonlinearity and reliability in detail. It is necessary to understand(More)
Research and development in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have made remarkable progress since the advent of the first electrostatic micromotor in 1987. Considerable efforts have been directed to the investigation of the failure mechanisms and reliability of electrostatic micromotors. This paper provides a brief overview of failure modes and(More)
In Atomic force microscope (AFM) examination of a vibrating microcantilever, the nonlinear tip-sample interaction would greatly influence the dynamics of the cantilever. In this paper, the nonlinear dynamics and chaos of a tip-sample dynamic system being run in the tapping mode (TM) were investigated by considering the effects of hydrodynamic loading and(More)
—Blind identification is a crucial subtask in signal processing problems such as blind signal separation (BSS) and direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation. This paper presents a procedure for multiple-input multiple-output instantaneous blind identification based on second-order temporal properties of the signals, such as coloredness and nonstationarity.
