Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Netlist Assurance Test Methods

2016-02-15
WIP
AS6171/16
Netlist Assurance Test Methods exist to assess microcircuit designs for maliciously added, removed, or modified functions detrimental to system operation. In the context of the Microcircuit fabrication design process, these methods will be used to analyze a computer aided design (CAD) representation of the microcircuit. The Netlist Assurance Test Methods discover vulnerabilities, undisclosed functions (e.g. "kill switch", paths to leak passwords, or triggers of malicious activity) and changes from the original specifications of the devices. These methods are intended to be used with standard verification methods that the implemented design has remained unchanged through the many transformations in the design flow.

WIP
AS6171/15
Non-conformance and now Suspect counterfeit packaging represents a hazard to electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitive devices or components through cross contamination during transport and storage while generating high voltage discharges to ESD sensitive devices during in shipping, the inspection process, handling and manufacturing. Several aerospace related issues involve long-term storage supplier non-conformance with antistatic foams, antistatic bubble, antistatic pink poly, vacuum formed antistatic polymers, Type I moisture barrier bags and Type III static shielding bags have posed issues. The late John Kolyer, Ph.D. (Boeing, Ret.) and Ray Gompf, P.E., Ph.D. (NASA-KSC, Ret.) were advocates in the utilization of a formalized physical testing material qualification process. Today, however, prime contractors and CMs rely heavily upon a visual inspection process for ESD packaging materials.

In order to reduce the volume of waste in general and of shredder waste from the disposal of scrap cars, the German Federal Government has prepared a draft regulation, which will be implemented unless the automotive industry and the distributors of imported cars take action on their own to achieve these objectives. The regulation provides that the car manufacturers are fully responsible for the environmentally controlled disposal of scrap cars. The return of scrap cars to the work industry must be free of change for the last owner. A nation-wide network for the return of scrap cars must be implemented by end of 1993. To reduce the amount of shredder waste the automotive industry is expected to practice recycling on non-metallic materials. Facilities required for thermal treatment of residues, which cannot be recycled, are to be installed on account of the originator, i.e. the automotive industry.

1999-01-1702
Vehicle sound package serves two basic functions: general acoustic insulation and local problem treatment. The former is often done at the up-front phase of the vehicle development process, and the latter at the downstream phase when representative prototype hardware becomes available and specific noise problems are identified. This paper examines the goals and key tasks of practical SEA CAE applications in the two phases of the sound package development process. Topics on CAE model requirement, typical analysis applications, and ways to improve the effectiveness of SEA applications to compliment hardware testing are discussed.

Sound Package Weight Reduction: An Analysis Through Tests and SEA Models

1999-05-17
1999-01-1696
This paper discusses the methods of reducing weight of sound package through a new approach in sound absorption and insulation. In contrast to conventional sound package theory, a light porous material with high absorption (Ultra Light material) is used to replace a conventional porous/barrier sandwich material (classic), which results in an equivalent or better noise reduction in-vehicle with significant weight reduction. A Noise Reduction (NR) test was conducted with a box equipped with both the Ultra Light material and classic material. A SEA model of the same setup was also analyzed. Results from both the test and the analysis show that it is possible to achieve weight reduction by replacing conventional porous/barrier sandwich materials with light porous materials with high absorption.

Class 8 truck manufacturers use a wide variety of materials for cab floor construction. These include traditional steel and aluminum plate as well as aluminum honey-comb and balsa wood core composites. Each of these materials has unique transmission loss properties. The acoustical performance of the floor system, (cab floor, decoupler, and barrier) depends not only on the acoustical performance of the decoupler and barrier, but also on the cab floor material. This paper outlines an experimental technique for selecting an acoustical floormat system utilizing vehicle and laboratory tests that takes these factors into account.

Package Tray Optimization Using Experimental and Analytical Techniques

1999-05-17
1999-01-1686
The area in the neighborhood of the package tray can be a significant path for road noise and exhaust noise. Air extraction routes and loudspeakers add to the difficulty of effective system design. A variety of designs were prototyped and their transmission loss measured in a standard SAE J1400 sound transmission loss suite. The performance of the various designs was compared to an untrimmed piece of sheet metal with embedded air extraction holes. The addition of trim added from 1 dB to 14 dB to the transmission loss. Statistical energy analysis (SEA) models of a variety of package tray systems will also be shown. Both of these techniques can provide design guidance at an early stage of vehicle program development.

Squeak and Rattle - State of the Art and Beyond

1999-05-17
1999-01-1728
Modern trends in noise control engineering have subjected the automobile to the “drained swamp” syndrome. Squeaks and rattles (S&R) have surfaced as major concerns. Customers increasingly perceive S&R as direct indicators of vehicle build quality and durability. The high profile nature of S&R has led manufacturers to formulate numerous specifications for assemblies and components. Even so, a large majority of buzz, squeak and rattle (BSR) issues are identified very late in the production cycle, some often after the vehicle is launched. Traditionally, the “find-and-fix” approach is widely adopted, leading to extensive BSR warranty bills. The “design-right-the-first-time” approach must replace the “find-and-fix” approach. Due to the vast breadth and depth of S&R issues, a comprehensive summary of the present state of the art is essential. This paper includes a literature survey of the current state of the art of S&R, and discusses the methods available to further advance it.

The Timken Company's Faircrest Steel Plant has numerous automated control systems. The Raw Material Handling System and a grinder application on the Billet Conditioning system needed upgrading; however, to control costs the upgrades had to use the existing I/O. The overall functionality of these two systems is vastly different. Soft control packages proved capable of interfacing with the existing I/O, satisfied the functional needs of the systems, and enhanced the overall functionality of the systems.
