The term “high reliability” has been around this industry for decades, but there isn’t much consensus about exactly what the term means. If you ask 10 PCB designers, process engineers, or buyers what high-reliability means, you’ll likely get ten different answers. What is the difference, technologically, between a “typical” PCB and a high-rel PCB?
So, we decided to find out by asking our readers directly: What does high reliability mean to you? Take a minute and fill out this survey. We promise you—it’s short and sweet. You’ll be finished before you’re done with your coffee.
