The Problem:
The goal of electronic boards testing and integration is to verify that the product is free of design errors. In case a failure is detected, a massive root cause analysis process starts until the failure cause is found, design correction is made, a new prototype is produced and re-tested. During that time, the design team is waiting.

The Solution:
BQR’s fiXtress™ is a unique software for detecting design errors of electronic boards during the design stage, before layout.
BQR’s fiXtress main features are:

  • Advanced circuit electrical stress simulator which calculates the actual operational values (power, volt-age, current)
  • Unique automated design review and analysis (based on BQR patent), which takes into account the calculated operational values
  • Multi-board integration analysis
  • Component derating

Benefits:

  • Reduce time to market
  • Reduce development cost
  • Increase product reliability and boost company reputation
  • Detect design errors before layout and manufacturing
  • Select optimal components
  • Reduce verification and validation time

fiXtress Experience:
Global leading companies have been using BQR’s fiXtress professional services. By finding design errors early in the design process, these companies have saved a lot of time and money.

Testimonial:
“fiXtress helps us accelerate our efforts to perform automated design reviews, electrical stress analysis and reliability prediction prior to PCB layout and manufacturing. It is both a time-saver and a productivity enhancer”  -Dr. Josh Liew, Reliability Program Manager, Baker Hughes

Product Description

BQR’s fiXtress is a superior Design for Reliability (DfR) suite, used as an add-on software tool for OrCAD. fiXtress™ is the only tool integrating design error detection with electrical stress, thermal, MTBF and service life prediction on the schematic level, before PCB layout.

Benefits:

    • Improves design robustness by detecting errors during schematic review
    • Corrects hard-to-detect design errors before fab-out
    • Streamlines the design process
    • Plug-in for OrCAD Schematic, suitable for any analog or digital PCB size
    • Applicable for all industries requiring highly reliable electronics boards

The powerful fiXtress toolkit contains the the following capabilities:

    • Simple MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) calculations according to Mil HDBK-217F2 Parts Count and Telcordia SR-332 issue 3 Parts Count & Parts Stress.
    • BOM is automatically created from the schematic.
    • Full excel reports are generated.
    • The tool includes a components library utility with an easy way to define new components for reuse.
    • Back annotation of the components MTBF (Failure Rate) to the schematic.
    • Easy connection to BQR’s fiXtress provides additional design simulation tools such as: automated schematic review, automated electrical stress derating and thermal analysis.
    • Additional Reliability and Safety engineering tools are available on www.bqr.com:
    • Electrical Stress Derating
    • FMEA: Failure Modes Effects Analysis
    • FMECA: Failure Modes Effects and Criticality Analysis
    • FTA: Fault Tress Analysis
    • RBD: Redundancy/Reliability Block Diagram
