Failure Analysis Control Board Project
Early Failures Detected
A manufacturer of control boards was experiencing elevated leakage currents and failures of a thermistor component and sought to identify the root cause of the failures. If it was determined that the failures of the thermistor could not be mitigated, the client was also considering a second thermistor supplier. Ansys-DfR was contracted to determine the failure mode, the root cause of the failure and any potential ways to mitigate the failure going forward.
