BQR fiXtress™

BQR fiXtress™

Design for Reliability toolset, addressing MTBF, stress derating analysis and schematic review, for developing more robust products.

HIGH RELIABILITY, FASTER

BQR fiXtress add-on for Altium Designer allows electronic engineers to design reliable and robust PCBs, shortening time-to-market, improving the design process and reducing field failures. fiXtress performs Automated Schematic Review, Stress Derating and MTBF/Reliability analysis, supporting back annotations of the results to the schematic view.

FIXTRESS™ AUTOMATED SCHEMATIC REVIEW (ASR)

Easy Detection of Design Errors Using Logical and Parametric Functional Verification. FiXtress™ Schematic Review automatically detects schematic design errors based on component parameters and rules. Typical engineering practices result in a manual, complex design review process, and fiXtress™ ASR automates this procedure. It reduces design time, increases design quality and verifies proper implementation of reference design as specified by IC manufacturers. fiXtress™ ASR is used by ADAS chip manufacturers as Rule Based Verification System.

FIXTRESS™ RAPID STRESS ANALYSIS

Swift Analysis Prior to Design Completion, including DC Stress Analysis Based on Net Potential and Ohm’s Law. fiXtress™ Rapid identifies problems early in the design process when they are easier and most cost-effective to correct. fiXtress™ Rapid replaces manual stress calculations, performing effective detection of design and reliability issues.

FIXTRESS™ PRECISE STRESS ANALYSIS

Detailed Analysis after Design Completion, Performs DC & AC Stress Analysis Using Kirchhoff Law and Fourier Analysis. fiXtress™ Precise performs innovative automated stress analysis calculation, providing highly accurate results. It accounts for component operational stress, identifies over-stressed and over-designed components, offers thermal-placement guidance, generates stress derating reports, and provides actual MTBF and service life calculations. Finally, it performs Electrical Stress Analysis (ESA) and detects design errors before PCB production.

FIXTRESS™ MTBF

Automated MTBF prediction in Altium Designer for various industries. fiXtress™ MTBF supports all MTBF prediction methods, such as Mil-Hdbk-217, Telcordia, Siemens, CNET, FIDES, IEC-62380 and Service Life.
