When designing for reliability with conformal coating then there are several important areas to consider for the product:
- Reliability Requirements
- Life Cycle
- Materials and Parts selection
- Electrical Effects
The purpose of the conformal coating is to protect the printed circuit board. This is to increase the circuit and product reliability.
To ensure the right level of reliability is achieved with the conformal coating then a complete understanding of the design requirements for the circuit board is critical.
This should be the starting point for most engineers when considering designing for reliability.
