ECAD Plug-Ins for fast MTBF Prediction
BQR offers software plugins for leading circuit design CADs that add the following capabilities:
- Simple Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) calculation according to Mil Hdbk 217 parts count, or Telcordia SR-332 issue 3. BOM is automatically imported from the CAD, and the tool also includes a components part number library for reuse of defined components, thereby saving engineers valuable time.
- Net-name and Net-property generator for standardized and meaningful net names. Netlist data is automatically retrieved from the CAD, and can be updated in order to clarify the meaning and usage of the net.
- Back annotation i.e. present stresses and revised net-names on the CAD schematic drawing.
- Easy connection to BQR’s fiXtress provides additional automated design error detection and automates component electrical stress analysis and Derating options
