Drop test

Drop survivability is a critical reliability requirement in many industries. It is the best way to evaluate if the product meets the compliance standard. A reasonable survivable height is also critical in defining the reputation of robustness. Taking the cellphone drop for example, typical risks includes,

  • Housing catastrophic fracturing, cracking or dent
  • Cover glass cracking
  • Adhesive failure
  • Sealing failure
  • Internal module failure due to shock
  • PCB deflection
  • Internal clearance closure
  • Camera permanent deformation

Our experts have extensive experience in drop simulations. We can offer analysis starting from very early stage of a product design cycle and provide feedbacks rapidly to guide decisions.
