What does it take to level-up the environmental and stress testing of your product to improve quality and reliability? Fast temperature cycling means more stress on your product and faster test completion. But going from simple environmental simulation to extreme thermal stress methodology means knowing what test equipment is available and what it can do.

Faster temperature cycling, extreme temperatures, and adding repetitive shock are all explored in this webinar. A quick look at integration with other test equipment and DAQ systems.

Whether working with existing equipment, trying to spec out new equipment, specifying your test so that your results meet expectations, or leveling up your entire test plan, join us to get tips to hack your current testing "game".

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how to multiply test effectiveness by combining stresses in a single test
  • Define the differences between simulation vs. stimulation. Identify different types of temperature cycling methodologies
  • Explain different types of cycling chambers and resources
  • Explore integration options and benefits with other test equipment
