The Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
The CALCE Electronics and System Consortium provides a forum for defining fundamental research needs, conducting research, and sharing research findings among participating organizations.
CALCE's educational strategy is to pioneer a multi-faceted approach for the dissemination of ideas and knowledge to all students through test-bed-development learning projects, multimedia, and courses.
The Test Services and Failure Analysis (TSFA) Lab performs standard and custom tests and failure analysis services, including proprietary services that may range from days to years.
Simulation Assisted Reliability Assessment (SARA) uses physics-of-failure based principles and software to assess whether a part or system can meet defined life cycle requirements based on its materials, geometry, and operating characteristics.
The mechanical engineering graduate program at the University of Maryland is ranked 16th in the nation.
The A. James Clark School of Engineering is ranked 22nd in the nation with Mechanical Engineering at #16 and three other programs in the top 25 (U.S. News & World Report).
International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society
The IMAPS student chapter at the University of Maryland is composed of several graduate students whose focus is in the field of microelectronics and electronics packaging. Many members are involved in microelectronics reliability through their graduate research at CALCE.
We provide assistance and research in advanced electronic systems through private consulting.
Research areas include, reliability analysis, accelerated testing, risk mitigation and management, life cycle analysis, and electronic systems design and analysis.
Symposium for Counterfeit Parts and Materials 2019
This symposium is a valuable resource for quality and reliability managers, supply chain managers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts and legal management, security specialists and government agencies.
