Sad Announcement:The Passing of  Alwyn H. Broaddus, the founder of DNB Engineering, Inc.

We are extremely sad to announce that Alwyn Broaddus, our beloved Founder of DNB Engineering, Inc., passed away on May 29th, 2018 at the grand age of 89. His inquiring mind and innovative spirit will live on as a legacy through the company.

Alwyn was deeply loved by his family and friends and there are no words to describe the loss that will be felt by his passing. He was a US Marine, EMI/EMC Pioneer and brilliant engineer. In the amateur radio world, Alwyn was well known as W6EMC and K6GIZ. Those of us who had the opportunity to work with him will also feel a tremendous loss. Mr. B put his heart and soul into his company. He was a remarkable leader; very talented, an extraordinarily intelligent and accomplished entrepreneur who started DNB Engineering, Inc. in 1979. The company has since become a global leader in compliance testing and engineering services that is operated by his sons Doug Broaddus and Bryan Broaddus.

We warmly thank Mr. Broaddus for what he has meant to all of us. We are privileged and grateful to share the wonderful memories, passion, humanistic values and love, and evolution of DNB Engineering, Inc. He will continue to live on, through us.

To his family and friends, we wish to express our condolences, love and everlasting admiration for an outstanding and amazing human being.

NEW Product Life Cycle Testing (HALT & HASS) to help customers improve product reliability.

NEW Product Life Cycle Testing (HALT & HASS) to help customers improve product reliability.

DNB Engineering, Inc. is pleased to announce an exciting new service. Our Anaheim (CA) facility now offers HALT & HASS (Highly Accelerated Life Testing and Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) new product test methods.

HALT (Highly Accelerated Lifecycle Testing) and HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) methods can be used in a variety of industries, including electronics, computer, medical, aerospace and military and helps to identify weaknesses in design or production. Both HALT and HASS are important test methods to use before a product has been introduced into the market. The benefit of these methods for the customer is the ability to achieve stress level results quicker than with conventional environmental test methods.

What is HALT and HASS?

HALT, or Highly Accelerated Life Testing, is a testing process often known as Destruct Testing. During the HALT test, components and /or assemblies are subjected to rapid temperature ramp rates and six axis random vibration stresses which gradually increase until such time as there is a failure. This failure is identified as a weak point in the design or material used. Once identified, product and material changes can be to rugged the product to improve overall quality. Often, these changes will improve the overall design and reduce the time spent in the development phase of the product life-cycle, effectively speeding the product’s time-to-market.

HASS, or Highly Accelerated Stress Screening, is a testing process that is performed on components and finished assemblies. HASS tests do not stress products to their destruct point. Instead, HASS testing identifies the upper and lower operational range of a product and allows for the opportunity to increase the operational range well beyond the product’s expected lifetime operational stresses.

HALT and HASS testing at DNB Engineering, Inc. use the environmental chamber with the ability to combine both temperature and random vibration inputs.

DNB’s HALT/HASS Chamber Capabilities:

  • Temperature Range -100°C to +200°C (-148°F to +392°F)
  • Temperature Ramp Rates Greater than 70°C/min (158°F/min)
  • Vibration Levels 1-50 GRMS
  • Six degrees of freedom
  • Table Size 36 x 30 inch (76 x 76 cm)
  • Workspace Dims 42 x 42 x 40 inch (91 x 91 x 104 cm)
  • Outside dims 8’x 8’ x 8’ (20 x 20 x 20 cm)
  • Maximum payload 600 lbs (284 kg)
  • Five temperature monitors  for customers use
  • Five Accelerometers for customer use/monitoring

DNB’s experienced engineers will provide full support, quick setup and running HALT & HASS tests on your product to get fast results. Our goal is to help customers to bring their product of world-class quality to market in the shortest possible time at the least cost.
