Trelic’s Team

We are a group of experts with a strong background in industrial and academic projects related to reliability and materials. Together we have more than 50 years of cumulative experience in reliability studies.

CEO

Laura Frisk

Ph.D.

Laura has worked in a wide range of topics in electronics packaging, materials, chemistry, and reliability. Her specialties are polymer materials and their use in demanding applications, characterization, and failure analysis. Furthermore, she has worked a lot with statistical reliability and material data-analysis and with reliability prediction models. Laura has a title of docent in Tampere University, Finland, in field of Reliability of Electrical Engineering.

 

Janne Kiilunen

Ph.D.

Janne has marked experience in electronics reliability and accelerated environmental testing. Especially, he has worked with test development and development of new measurement technologies. His specialties include for example test design for accelerated reliability, development of testing and measurement methods, and failure analysis. 

 

Sanna Lahokallio

Ph.D.

Sanna’s main expertise areas are material and failure analysis and she has numerous studies in these areas. She has very strong knowledge of electrically conductive adhesives and their use at challenging environments. Additionally, her specialties include material characterization, reliability of RFIDs, and interconnection technologies.

 

Juha Pippola

M.Sc.

Juha has in-depth knowledge for testing of industrial and power electronics devices using different accelerated test methods. Additionally, he has marked expertise in corrosion testing. He has studied for example the effect of different coating materials. His specialties include accelerated reliability testing at product level, mechanical testing, dust and corrosion testing, and failure analysis.

story Of Trelic

We founded Trelic Ltd in 2016. The idea for a consultation, testing and analysis company for reliability and materials had originated from the years of research we had conducted in Packaging and Reliability Research Group in Department of Electronics, Tampere University of Technology (TUT). In TUT we had worked in vast variety of industrial and academic projects. Our work had been very interdisciplinary and was always conducted in very close collaboration with many industrial companies. Consequently, we could see a need for high quality consulting and testing and analysis services in the area.

Our main research areas in TUT included electronics, power electronics, and materials. We worked for example, with the miniaturization of electronics, interconnection technologies (for example, lead-free solders, flip-chip and flex-on-board), protective materials (for example coating and overmoulds), RFID packaging technologies, and industrial electronics packaging and materials. Our projects included lots of material characterization, analysis, and selection of materials for industrial applications. All our research projects dealt also with reliability issues and several projects concentrated on reliability testing methods and failure analysis. We published our research results in numerous scientific articles and presented them in the leading conferences.

Our research group in TUT we had researchers with very different expertise areas. This was one of our main advantages and this has been important for us also in Trelic. Our academic background in electronics, reliability and material research has given us a unique benefit to be able to offer very wide range of expertise areas and services for our customers.

In Trelic we are passionate about our field and constantly improving our knowledge in the areas of reliability and materials  to be able to give the best possible service to our customers.
