    A Guide to Hardware Integrity and Reliability Testing

    A Guide to Hardware Integrity and Reliability Testing

    Hardware engineers don’t often have a map to reliability testing when they are building a new product. Reliability testing is often custom to each product and must examine both the design intent of the engineers and the criteria of the brand building it. For household items like phones and watches, the steps have been walked by many engineers before them. But for emerging and mission-critical categories, like autonomous vehicles, reliability testing must evolve, and hardware leaders like Maik Duwensee from cruise are pioneering a new reliability mindset: hardware integrity.
    In this episode, Anna-Katrina speaks with Maik Dewensee, Head of Hardware Integrity at Cruise, about why reliability testing is so important and what consumer electronics can learn from automotive reliability and vice versa.
    Topics covered:
    The difference between hardware integrity and reliability
    What is considered validated from a reliability perspective
    Tactical strategies from automotive reliability that consumer electronics can use
    Best practices for reliability data today

    Unicorn Startup Density’s Approach to Manufacturing

    Unicorn Startup Density’s Approach to Manufacturing

    San Francisco-based startup Density secured its unicorn status this November following a fresh injection of $125 million in venture capital financing and a $1.05 billion valuation- but it hasn’t always been smooth sailing.

    Six years ago, the team at Density ran into two challenges.

    They were struggling to achieve their product design goals through a third-party manufacturer and unable to find a CM that was willing to build at lower volumes.

    Turns out, those two challenges were exactly the catalyst they needed to bring all hardware engineering, operations, and design work in-house and start down the path of building their own factory and a huge Series D.

    In this episode, Anna-Katrina speaks with Garrett Bastable, VP of Operations at Density, about the company’s unique approach to manufacturing and the advice he has for other companies who want to follow in their footsteps.

    Topics covered:

    - Why the team at Density chose to build their own factory

    - The benefits of building in-house

    - The potential drawbacks

    - What companies should know before building their own factory

    To get a peek inside Density’s factory, watch the video of this webinar.
