fiXtress: Schematic Review, Stress Simulation & Derating
fiXtress for Electronic Circuits
Today’s electronic designs are becoming increasingly complex, making it harder to detect errors that generate high costs and hundreds of work hours. Detecting these errors in advance can be instrumental in preventing these damages. Unfortunately, in many cases, these errors are discovered only in the testing phase or at the customer’s site.
BQR’s fiXtress is a powerful and unique (patented) design error detection and stress analysis tool for electrical circuits. fiXtress detects design errors during the design phase, before layout and production. This way, no schematic, connectivity or stress errors are found in the qualification tests during final verification. fiXtress shortens design cycles and time to market, which in turn saves a lot of money and helps bolster corporate reputation.
fiXtress is a superior Design for Reliability (DfR) suite, serving as an add-on for any Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tool. It is the only tool integrating design error detection with electrical stresses, thermal, MTBF and service life prediction at the schematic level, before PCB layout and production. fiXtress modules can either operate standalone, or complement other modules to provide a comprehensive DfR solution for electrical circuits and PCB design.
