Combining computer science, mechanics and electronics improves the performance of embedded electronic systems by reducing their weight, volume, energy consumption and manufacturing cost. Mechatronic equipment is increasingly required to extend zero-fault lifetime service.

Embedded Mechatronic Systems 2 presents recent advances made by research laboratories and associated manufacturers in the field of mechatronic systems. This approach makes reliability an integral part of the design process. Providing many detailed examples, this book develops a characterization methodology for flaws in mechatronic systems. Using multi-physical modeling of failures, it analyzes design weaknesses and failure mechanisms. The development of metamodels is also discussed, since this is key to simulating the effects on reliability of conditions of use and manufacture.

This second edition contains a revision of Chapter 6 on metamodel development and two new chapters: one on the probabilistic study and optimization of a solder interconnect, and one on a reliability analysis based on metamodels of chip-scale packages.
