HALT/HASS/ESS Testing
 
Description
 Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) is a design verification tool for testing electronic and electromechanical devices. HALT employs extreme thermal rate changes and vibration stresses that quickly uncover design flaws and precipitates latent defects that might otherwise be exhibited as field failures and warranty problems.

HASS Testing applies all stresses simultaneously. During vibration, continuously ramp temperature between brief dwells at extremes. HASS Stress levels are based on HALT limits: Include any "critical" additional product stresses (as determined from HALT, e.g. product power), conduct precipitation screen and evaluate product beyond operating limits, near destruct limits, precipitate failures in product due to "latent" defects, conduct detection screen and evaluate product near operating limits, and confirm and explore precipitation screen failures, and other hard and soft failures.
