Avoid failures before they occur
Tailor-made. Reliable. Experienced. - ZESTRON Reliability & Surfaces
AVOID FIELD FAILURESTechnology coaching
Ionic or particulate contamination on the surface can cause electronic assemblies to malfunction. To minimise the risk of failure and ensure reliability, our experienced Reliability & Surfaces Team (R&S) offers customised technology coaching.
Electrochemical migration, leakage current or a short circuit are typical failure mechanisms. Within the scope of technology coaching, our R&S team advises and supports you on how to avoid failures and produce reliable, moisture-resistant assemblies - along the entire value chain.
YOUR ADVANTAGESAvoid failures and produce reliable assemblies
1. preventive assessment of the risk of default before production starts
2. analysis of failures during validation tests
3. cause analysis in case of damage in the field
SOLUTION-ORIENTEDReliability is our drive
On the way to solving your challenge, the first step is to identify the (potential) failure mechanism. To do this, we use a wide range of analytical methods such as SEM/EDX, ion chromatography or fracture stress analysis. We put the results into the overall context of your problem and then work out feasible measures to solve it.

TECHNOLOGY COACHING PACKAGESA wide range of specially developed technology coaching
Every challenge is individual. But our experience shows that some problems occur more frequently than others. In order to be able to help you even faster and in a more targeted manner, we have therefore put together packages with the appropriate analyses.
Risk assessment of particles on electronic assemblies
We check the safety of your assembly with regard to short circuits and impairment of insulation coordination triggered by conductive particles.
Control of processed solder pastes and fluxes on electronic assemblies
We analyse whether the fluxes used comply with the specifications, especially with regard to ROL0 requirements and required tracking resistance/paintability.
Conformal coating: validation and routine testing
The protective effect of the coating against electrochemical migration, leakage current and corrosion is verified by means of tests.
Risk assessment of leakage currents and condensation
We determine the hygroscopicity and corrosivity of ionic impurities and thus the risk of leakage currents and condensation.
