How Ansys Sherlock helps us in our reliability analysis

Ansys Sherlock is the only reliability physics-based electronics design tool that provides fast and accurate life predictions for electronic hardware at the component, board and system levels in early stage design.

Sherlock bypasses the ‘test-fail-fix-repeat’ cycle by allowing Novo designers to accurately model silicon–metal layers, semiconductor packaging, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and assemblies to predict failure risks due to thermal, mechanical and manufacturing stressors, all before prototyping.

Reliability predictions based on physics of failure (PoF) principles resides at the core of the Ansys Sherlock. Using Ansys simulation tools, we can determine how long it takes for a product to fail and why the failure occurred.
