Reliability (semiconductor)
Reliability of semiconductor devices can be summarized as follows:Design factors affecting semiconductor reliability include: voltage derating, power derating, current derating, metastability, logic t...
Soldering
Soldering is a process in which two or more metal items are joined together by melting and flowing a filler metal (solder) into the joint, the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoin...
Negative-bias temperature instability
Negative-bias temperature instability (NBTI) is a key reliability issue in MOSFETs. NBTI manifests as an increase in the threshold voltage and consequent decrease in drain current and transconductance...
Robust random early detection
Robust random early detection (RRED) is a queueing disclipine for a network scheduler. The existing random early detection (RED) algorithm and its variants are found vulnerable to emerging attacks, es...
2008 submarine cable disruption
2008 submarine cable disruption was three separate incidents of major damage to submarine optical communication cables around the world. The first incident caused damage involving up to five high-spee...
Failure modes of electronics
Electronic components have a wide range of failure modes. These can be classified in various ways, such as by time or cause. Failures can be caused by excess temperature, excess current or voltage, io...
Vibration fatigue
Vibration fatigue is a mechanical engineering term describing material fatigue, caused by forced vibration of random nature. An excited structure responds according to its natural-dynamics modes, whic...
Power outage
A power outage (also called a power cut, a power blackout, or a power failure) is a short- or long-term loss of the electric power to an area.There are many causes of power failures in an electricity ...
Uncontrolled decompression
Uncontrolled decompression is an unplanned drop in the pressure of a sealed system, such as an aircraft cabin, and typically results from human error, material fatigue, engineering failure, or impact,...
Global storm activity of 2009
Global storm activity of 2009 profiles the major worldwide storms, including blizzards, ice storms, and other winter events, from January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009. Wintery storms are events in whi...
Buckling
In science, buckling is a mathematical instability, leading to a failure mode. Theoretically, buckling is caused by a bifurcation in the solution to the equations of [[Mechanical equilibrium|static eq...
Corrosion
Corrosion is the gradual destruction of materials (usually metals) by chemical reaction with their environment. In the most common use of the word, this means electrochemical oxidation of metals in re...
Current crowding
Current crowding (also current crowding effect, or CCE) is a nonhomogenous distribution of current density through a conductor or semiconductor, especially at the vicinity of the contacts and over the...
Edward Higgins White
Edward Higgins "Ed" White, II (November 14, 1930 – January 27, 1967), (Lt Col, USAF), was an American aeronautical engineer, U.S. Air Force officer, test pilot, and NASA astronaut. On June ...
Crocodile cracking
Crocodile cracking, also called fatigue cracking or alligator cracking, is a common type of distress in asphalt pavement. It is usually studied under the transportation section of civil engineering. C...
Fatigue (material)
In materials science, fatigue is the weakening of a material caused by repeatedly applied loads. It is the progressive and localized structural damage that occurs when a material is subjected to cycli...
Ultrasonic soldering
Ultrasonic soldering is a flux-less soldering process that uses ultrasonic energy, without the need for chemicals to solder materials, such as glass, ceramics, and composites, hard to solder metals an...
2005 Moscow power blackouts
On 25 May 2005, Moscow's power supplies were the centre of a major incident, which resulted in the supply being outed for several hours in many of City of Moscow districts, as well as Moscow, Tula, Ka...
Hot-carrier injection
Hot carrier injection (HCI) is a phenomenon in solid-state electronic devices where an electron or a “hole” gains sufficient kinetic energy to overcome a potential barrier necessary to break an inte...
Network congestion
In data networking and queueing theory, network congestion occurs when a link or node is carrying so much data that its quality of service deteriorates. Typical effects include queueing delay, packet...
Polymer degradation
Polymer degradation is a change in the properties—tensile strength, color, shape, etc.—of a polymer or polymer-based product under the influence of one or more environmental factors such as heat, ligh...
Time-dependent gate oxide breakdown
Time-dependent gate oxide breakdown (or time-dependent dielectric breakdown, TDDB) is a failure mechanism in MOSFETs, when the gate oxide breaks down as a result of long-time application of relatively...
Burnishing (metal)
Burnishing is the plastic deformation of a surface due to sliding contact with another object. Visually, burnishing smears the texture of a rough surface and makes it shinier. Burnishing may occur on ...
Solder paste
A majority of the defects in circuit-board assembly are caused due to issues in the solder-paste printing process or due to defects in the solder paste. There are many different types of defects—too m...
Solder
Solder (/ˈsoʊldə/, /ˈsɒldə/ or in North America /ˈsɒdər/) is a fusible metal alloy used to join together metal workpieces and having a melting point below that of the workpiece(s).Soft solder is typic...
Michael J. Smith (astronaut)
Michael John Smith (April 30, 1945 – January 28, 1986), usually known as Mike Smith, was an American astronaut—pilot of the Space Shuttle Challenger when it was destroyed during the STS-51...
