HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) is an accelerated product reliability test method focused on finding design or component weaknesses in a product. Incorporating HALT testing during development helps to shorten the total product development time, and failures can be found and fixed before they become expensive field issues after product launch. During a HALT test, a product is subjected to a series of overstresses to accelerate fatigue in the part of interest. The samples are tested far outside the normal operating conditions. HALT testing supports design verification in a fast and efficient way and can reveal failure mechanisms in a few days instead of weeks or months.
HALT testing is based on stressing the product via a range of different potential parameters. A HALT test is typically based on the following five tests:
