MEMS expert Allyson Hartzell gave a webinar titled “Intro to MEMS Reliability – How to Fix Problems Before They Happen.” The webinar covered common failure mechanisms in MEMS and examples of design and process fixes. Also covered were: lifetime predictive methodologies, acceleration factor development, statistical distributions of reliability data, and case studies of non-standard MEMS reliability predictions. Simulation of MEMS, packaging, and systems were included. This webinar provided guidance to the MEMS user and/or designer, with advice on how to fix problems before they happen, as well as how to fit data properly. Hosted by the MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MIG), the webinar took place on March 31, 2016.
