Fraunhofer ENAS is dedicated to the complex challenges of reliability and develops new solutions in the field of electronics and smart systems integration. With more than 25 years of experience, the Micro Materials Center of Fraunhofer ENAS, todays functional team reliability, is one of the most important drivers of method development in Europe and a competent provider of R&D services.
In the field of reliability research, the employees focus on the following areas:
- Strategies for comprehensive reliability testing and analysis especially thermo mechanical reliability, analysis of failure and charavterization oft he relevant materials behaviour
- Acceleration of reliability assessment through virtual techniques based on numerical simulation
- Digital twins for Design for Reliability
- Prevention of unexpected functional failure through predictive self-monitoring (health management, self-diagnosis).
The interaction of all levels (material, process, component, system and application) is comprehensively researched and included in the analysis and optimization of reliability.
