This thesis describes a series of experiments, algorithms, and methodology development for implementing Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) in the field of automotive electronics. Furthermore, a new PHM framework is proposed explicitly tailored for the harsh environment electronics. In addition, the entire apparatus is built, such as the sensing capabilities of electronic packages and control units. A central PHM ECU is also developed to acquire the signal from sensors, process it, and perform calculations.
