Why is Thermal analysis needed?
Poor Thermal management leads to more than 50% of electronic failures. The failure rate for electronics increases exponentially with the increase in junction temp.
Thermal analysis of automotive components like IC, PCB, and Sub-Systems can be performed using the BQR software.
BQR thermal analysis can be conducted at the early design stage when changes are easy to implement.

Improve the Safety of your Road Vehicle Electronics
As the automotive industry continues to develop more intelligent and connected vehicles, road vehicle electronics need to be addressed for their safety. The integration of electronics has led to significant advancements in features such as anti-lock brakes, airbags, and electronic stability control systems, but it’s important to be aware of the new safety challenges that come with it.
Fortunately, the automotive industry has developed the ISO 26262 standard, a functional safety standard that minimizes the risk of accidents and injuries. By following a set of processes and procedures, from concept to decommissioning, ISO 26262 provides a framework for the development of safety-critical systems in road vehicles to ensure that safety is considered at every stage.
The ISO 26262 methodologies:
- Hazard analysis and risk assessment: This methodology is used to identify hazards and assess their potential risks. It involves identifying potential failure modes and their effects on the system, as well as evaluating the likelihood and severity of these effects.
- Safety Integrity Level (SIL) determination: SIL determination is used to evaluate the safety performance of safety-critical systems. It involves assigning a SIL to each safety function based on the severity of the potential hazards. The SIL determination process helps to ensure that safety requirements are appropriate for the level of risk associated with the system.
- Failure rate prediction: To verify compliance with the SIL requirements, the expected failure rates of electronic circuits should be predicted. Prediction is conducted based on accepted failure prediction standards such as SN 29500, IEC 61709, MIL HDBK 217 F notice 2, and FIDES 2009.
- Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA): FMEA is a systematic approach to identifying potential failures in a system and their potential effects. It involves breaking down the system into individual components and assessing the failure modes and their effects on the system.
- Diagnostic Analysis: Diagnostic analysis evaluates failure mode detection and isolation capability in safety-critical systems, ensuring that failure modes are identified and addressed before they can cause harm.
- Fault Tree Analysis (FTA): FTA is a technique used to analyze the causes of a specific system failure. While FMEA analyzes effects of single failure mode occurrences, FTA deals with combinations of events.
BQR offers a unique solution for analyses to verify that your electronic product will comply with ISO 26262 SIL requirements. Here are the modules that BQR software includes:
