Evaluation of press-in connections for increased safety requirements

Press-in connections are state of the art for safety-critical applications in automotive applications. The current IPC and IEC regulations have so far made insufficient reference to this aspect. In this presentation, case studies are used to consider criteria relevant to evaluation in the findings of non-destructive testing and metallographic preparation. This also applies to the evaluation of the deterioration of insulation paths. Additionally, the significance of the features and criteria found is presented from the point of view of a third-party laboratory for product qualification and failure analysis.
