Derating Analysis for Electronic Components
What is component derating analysis?
The maximum rating for applied component stress (current, voltage, power, temperature, etc.) is defined by the manufacturer, and even stricter derating guidelines are defined to increase product robustness. Component derating analysis defines the optimal operating range for each component.
Why You Need Component Derating Analysis
Component damage may occur when it is subjected to power, current, voltage, or temperature which surpass its maximum stress rating.
Electrical overstress affects product performance, and is the leading cause of field returns.
