Many materials and electronic devices are sensitive to humidity and moisture, making them susceptible to corrosion and decay. Adding temperature and/or pressure accelerates the deterioration and shortens testing time. By doing so, we are then able to predict the lifetime of the materials under test.
Electrical signals and electrical measurements can be taken while the subjected devices are in the environmental chambers to evaluate the effect of the stress on overall circuit performance
Reliability testing to the following standards, and others, is performed:
