Digi-Key has undertaken this venture to enable efficient and cost-effective use of BQR’s software solution in a SaaS mode to evaluate products’ BOM MTBF.
“The new BOM MTBF application will enable Digi-Key customers to easily compare different BOMs MTBF, making sure the design meets the reliability goal early in the design process, before manufacturing,” said Yizhak Bot, Founder and CTO of BQR Reliability Engineering. “With Pareto reports showing the most unreliable components, it will ensure the selection of components that balance reliability and cost. It will also provide measures for warranty analysis, design reviews, tenders, product data sheets, and design trade-offs.”
This tool makes it easy to calculate MTBF for BOMs of any size - just export the BOM file and click on “Launch Calculator” on the Digi-Key website and the calculation will happen immediately. The online application includes a library smart data auto-complete for BOM components using AI, fast calculation engine, and detailed Pareto and graphic reports. This calculator is 100% secure and the components library and results are saved on the user’s desktop (not on BQR server).
Users can also conduct quick “What If” analyses, checking how a components quality level will increase the product MTBF.
