Mentor Graphics Corp.’s (Wilsonville, OR) Xpedition vibration and acceleration simulation product for printed circuit board (PCB) systems reliability and failure prediction addresses the challenges of harsh environments for today’s electronics. Xpedition Design for Reliability (DfR) augments mechanical analysis and physical testing by introducing virtual accelerated lifecycle testing much earlier in the design process. According to Mentor Graphics, it is the industry’s first PCB-design-specific vibration and acceleration simulation solution targeting products where harsh environments can compromise product performance and reliability, including automotive, military, aerospace and industrial markets. Bridging mechanical and electronic design disciplines, Mentor Graphics claims the Xpedition product provides vibration simulation significantly faster than any existing method. This results in increased test coverage and shortened design cycles to ensure product reliability and faster time to market. For more information, visit
