Overview of Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT)

Chet Haibel
Chet Haibel has been in New Product Development all his professional life. His first 18 years were spent "learning by doing" as an R&D Engineer, Project Leader, and Program Manager on a wide variety of products at three different divisions of Hewlett-Packard Company, and at a start-up company.As Reliability Engineering Manager of Disk Drives at Hewlett-Packard, Chet was instrumental in surpass...read more


HALT is not just "shake and bake" but a test philosophy, we look at the stressors and the level of overstress used to obtain successful results in a wide variety of products. Modulated Excitation(TM) is offered as the key to intermittent failure detection; a true breakthrough for "no fault found" field returns. Finally latent failures from vibration are "developed" to where they are patent (visible to test) using moisture to complete the art failure detection.
