As a society, our dependency on electronics products permeates every corner of the world, at an ever accelerated pace. As an industry, we have been and will continue to place the highest priority on product reliability, while facing increasingly demanding customers and mounting competitive pressures. It is widely recognized that product reliability issues can result in inconvenience in some cases and catastrophe in others. It is, therefore, a matter of the utmost importance that we educate our college students and practicing engineers on the reliability of microtechnology – its theory and practical applications. The issue of reliability, however, is complicated by the wide variety of application environments and requirements, which give rise to different stress conditions (thermomechanical, dynamical, e
