Electronics Industry

The electronics industry is one of the largest global industries. Almost all man-made devices include electronics for sensing, control, operation and actuation.
The electronics industry is highly competitive, and OEMs are hard pressed to produce high quality products with short time to market.
The classic way to achieve product reliability is to conduct accelerated life tests in specialized labs. However, these tests consume a lot of time and money.
Improving products reliability and robustness by simulation

 

BQR offers software and services for eliminating circuit design errors during the design stage. This is achieved by:

  • Calculating electrical stresses for each component (Power, Voltage, Current and Temperature) using BQR’s fiXtress circuit simulator
  • Derating analysis for electronic components based on the above stress results
  • Automated advanced DRC and ERC (Design Rule Check & Electrical Rules Check) that detects hidden design errors
  • Automated Schematic and Design Review & Analysis Driven by Electrical Stress Simulation

 

Analyzing and improving product Safety

Electronic devices provide critical functionalities and device failures can lead to great harm to the asset, and even loss of lives.
Standard methods exist for safety analysis of electronic circuits including FMEA/FMECA (Failure Mode Effects Analysis) and FTA (Fault Tree Analysis).
BQR offers software and services for safety analysis of electronic circuits down to component level. BQR software include plug-in modules to popular eCAD systems to automatically receive design data directly and concurrently from the design, saving time and money which shorten the design cycle.

BQR provides the following software and professional services

Component stress analysis and derating, schematic review, design analysis and design error detection of electronic products

Testability Analysis of optimal BIT (Built In Test) and ATE (Automatic Test Equipment) capabilities to detect and isolate failures

Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and safety (RAMS) assessments in accordance to military standards

Maintenance and logistics optimization for perimeter equipment that is distributed over long distances

Statistical analysis of components failure distribution based on failure history
