Harsh Environments Electronic Materials Research Programme 2022-2025 and Collaboration Opportunities

Tue, Jul 12, 2022 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM BST

This webinar will summarize recently completed projects and present the Group’s proposals for extending our research portfolio and capability over the next 3 years. We would like to present our vision and give you the opportunity to influence the research priorities. A list of subject areas is given below. The session will also explain how you and your company can be involved in our projects and influence project parameters to best reflect your requirements.

  • Metrology for harsh environment electronics and power electronics
  • High voltage electrical fatigue within PCBs
  • High temperature interconnects and substrates reliability
  • Partial discharge measurements and degradation in solid and liquid dielectric materials
  • High voltage CAF (conductive anodic filament failures >1000V)) measurements and test vehicles
  • Rapid/In-process conformal coating evaluation
  • Immersion/Condensation Testing
  • Electronic Impedance Spectroscopy for rapid materials evaluation

Past webinars

Our electronics reliability webinars are now available in two formats:

New Fundamental webinars

Our new series of 30 min webinars is aimed at early career engineers, reviewing measurement techniques and how to apply them to better understand reliability performance and potential impact on product life cycle.

These quick-fire sessions allow a high level of knowledge exchange where technical knowhow is not essential and are an excellent precursor to product trouble shooting and quality control.

Technical webinars

The majority of our technical webinars run for 60 minutes which provide in depth analysis and measurement of testing and performance of applications where we review techniques and better understand reliability performance.

These sessions provide interpretation and crucial in the support of product development and in-field performance issues.

Individuals are welcome to attend both webinar formats.

A copy of each of the slides presented and links to NPL reports will be provided after each webinar where appropriate. In preparation for the event and to ensure you are equipped to gain the maximum benefit, please read our simple Webinar Guidelines.
