    A thermophysical criterion for the weldability of contact materials is determined as an unambiguous function of the fusion temperature and of the temperature dependences of the resistivity and thermal conductivity of these materials. The values of this criterion are calculated for most metals, a number of alloys, and some of sintered compounds usually applied in contact design. Also calculated is ... View full abstract»

    In very high scale integrated circuits (VHSIC)/technology, reliability ground rules must be developed and included in chip design rules. This concept of "designed-in" reliability, rather than the traditional "tested-in" reliability approach, will be necessary in VHSIC. Accelerated testing becomes important as timely feedback on process, design, and reliability must be provided during technology de... View full abstract»
