The existing prognostic techniques for electronics are reviewed and classified into three categories: data driven methods, model driven methods and fusion methods. It ranges from simple statistical methodologies (i.e. historical failure rates and time-series predictions) to high-fidelity models that consider failure mechanisms and their progression. Applications of these techniques, particularly the model driven techniques for power electronic modules are also reported.
