The iNEMI Connector Reliability Test Recommendations Project, Phases 1 through 3, addressed the need for a standardized reliability evaluation method for connectors. Existing connector reliability testing standards do not address the full range of connector applications nor have the necessary detailed, defined test conditions and sequences for them.
Phase 1 defined levels of interconnect (connector level) and recommended a physics of failure test approach. In Phase 2 the team defined a set of stress levels and specific test conditions to use when evaluating connector performance.
In Phase 3, the team modified the methodology defined in Phase 2 and applied it to two types of connectors: USB-C and SP3 socket. The intention of the modified testing methodology was to perform “tests to failure” to then allow reliability estimates to be calculated. 
The end-of-project webinar will review the development of the test cycles for the connector types addressed, discuss the actual testing and results, plus identify lessons learned and possible next steps.
This webinar is open to industry; advance registration is required (see links below). Two sessions are scheduled (with the same content). If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Mark Schaffer (marks@inemi.org).
