Vibration and Mechanical Shock Test
The vibration test simulates shocks upon the product resulting from transportation, installation and use environments, so as to verify if the product is sustainable to various vibrations. This test is especially important for testing vibration sustainability of automobile electronics.
Commonly employed vibration types:
Sine Vibration – simulate marine vibrations for verifying sustainability of vessels, and for performing Resonance Analysis of the product structure and verifying the Dwelling Resonance of resonance frequencies.
Random Vibration – assess vibration sustainability of the integral structure of product and simulating transportation conditions in packaged state during the delivery.
For testing IC components that are light weighted and compact in size, high-frequency vibration is used in comply with MIL STD standards which is employed by USA customers.
