Abstract

Temperature cycling, the most widespread accelerated test vehicle in experimental reliability physics today, is costly, time- and labor consuming, but, most importantly, can result in misleading information, because electronic and photonics materials’ properties and performance are temperature dependent and temperature sensitive, and reliability testing, especially if it is of failure-oriented type (see, e.g., [1]), is conducted in a temperature range, which is much wider than what the product will most likely encounter in actual operation conditions.
