Power electronic modules distinguish themselves from other modules by their high power operation. These modules are used extensively in high power application markets such as aerospace, automotive, industrial and traction and drives. This paper discusses typical packaging technologies for power electronics modules. It also discusses the latest results from a UK research project investigating the physics-of-failure approach to reliability analysis and predictions for power modules. An integrated design enviroment for incorporating of affects of uncertainty into the design environment was outlined.
