Preventing impending FPGA failures, intermittent and catastrophic faults in electronic control systems can now be prevented by using the SJ BIST technology that accurately detects and reports instances of high resistance, including intermittents opens, in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). Solder joints are subject to mechanical failure; they inevitably suffer damage from thermal and vibrational stresses, causing troublesome intermittent connections between components on the borards. The ability to measure, detect, and predict solder aging and the resultant failure of electronic modules is a true advancement in electronics reliability.
Unique In-Situ Testing in Operating Circuits before SJ BIST, the only way to check programmed FPGAs for faults was to take them offline for testing and x-rays. These methods raise maintenance costs and often result in “no trouble found” or “could not duplicate” diagnoses. SJ BIST is installed in your operating components and predicts when a component is likely to fail – with zero false alarms.
