Electronics Vibration Testing

Electronic vibration testing encompasses a wide variety of products that are used in daily life. Weeding out design failures, shipping/handling flaws and assembly errors before entering the marketplace for cell phone, personal computer or even radio manufacturers is a must to ensure device longevity.

Enter two values out of the four between Acceleration, Frequency, Velocity, or Displacement, and the calculator will do the rest.


Measure your products fatigue and calculate its lifespan. Commonly used life acceleration techniques are applied to shorten test time.


Re-introduce the high acceleration peaks back into your random vibration tests.


Products are at risk of being dropped or damaged during shipping and handling.


Reproduce, in your test Lab on your shaker, the actual acceleration waveform you measure in the field.

How do I Measure the Life of my Product?

One question facing everyone from the designers to the purchasers of such a product is, “How much vibration will cause failure?” A related question is, “How long will the product last given a specified vibration environment?” This tutorial presents three test methods that can be used to answer these questions.

Compare Field Data to a Specification


Reproduce your data 1:1 as it happened in the real world (transportation simulation). However, this can be time consuming.


Run your recorded data. Run Random peaks as average, peak hold or somewhere in the middle. But, for how long?

Chatter Monitoring

Chatter events can be classified as a discontinuity or bounce. Discontinuity is simply a significant deviation from a monitored parameter. Bounce is an event where the NO contact does not make a secure connection immediately when the electromagnetic coil is energized.
