Title: A View of the Electronics Industry Process, Reliability, and Materials Research Landscape

Abstract:  Today, the electronic industry’s OEMs and CMs are forced to comply with market trends in technologies - due to part availability or cost, and reliability testing for validation.  The term "reliability" is often misused, since these tests are evaluation or qualification tests - based upon internal or customer driven standard practices, or on industry accepted standards which do not always provide pass/fail criterion.  These tests are employed as best guesses for the reliability of products in the field.  This condition is primarily a consequence of limited materials understanding.
