|iNEMI Connector Reliability Test Recommendations Project Report|
|Keywords: Connector, Reliability, Testing|
|A key issue identified by the 2013 iNEMI connector survey was that test capabilities for socket reliability (such as temp cycle and shock, failure analysis) are different across the various socket/connector manufacturers. The associated criterion for ‘passing’ is not consistent. One of the interests shown from the survey was in the topic of Standard Reliability Qualification, the need to drive standard reliability test conditions and equipment capabilities across the industry. To this end, the iNEMI Connector Reliability Test Recommendations project group reviewed current classes of connectors and identify gaps, which proved input for the development of an industry survey as to determine a current list of levels used by suppliers/OEMs, leading to the development of a connector standard list levels for each package levels connector type. The work presented here defines levels for each packaging class of connector. In addition, to a proposed associated test conditions of one class and associated Pass/Fail criteria.|
