Welcome to the ASTR Chairmanís Corner. This part of the website will serve to report on past activities and to inform on upcoming events.
I would like to personally invite you and your associates to participate in the 2005 ASTR workshop in Austin, Texas. This committee is dedicated to communicating best practices of accelerated stress testing and reliability. We do this by hosting an annual three day interactive workshop located in a different area of the US each year. The committee members understand first hand the value ASTR brings to product development. (click here for more information about the ASTR workshop committee)
This year's workshop will be held at the DRISKILL HOTEL in Austin, Texas

The all day tutorial program will be held on the first day of the Workshop and features well respected experts sharing their experiences and hard learned lessons. Two parallel sessions, Basic AST and Advanced AST Subjects, will ensure that experienced practitioners as well as those who are just entering the field will find useful and interesting presentations.
Design of Experiments
Overall AST planning and management
Reliability of component packaging and/or assembly and/or systems
AST for specific systems: optoelectronic packaging, rf devices
Reliability of specific systems
Emerging technologies and future systems, such as MCM, System in Packaging, microsystems, nanotechnologies, and their reliability
Other AST issues
The two day workshop program will present new and innovative Accelerated Stress Testing techniques in use today. Past workshops featured speakers discussing their accomplishments in providing accelerated reliability testing for a wide range of products as well as failure analysis techniques and data analysis.
