Electromagnetic and thermomechanic characterization and reliability evaluation#

This topic addresses back-end of line components, chip-package interaction and reliability assessment of board and system level. Both, the thermomechanical reliability analysis and optimal layout for electronic components, devices and systems and simulative thermoelectrical reliability on a system (PCB) and package level, are addressed.

Application examples and scenarios#
