Whitepaper #1: MythBuster – “Extended Temperature” Embedded Computers
When integrating Single Board Computers (SBCs) into industrial, military, and aerospace systems, engineers typically specify an extended temperature range SBC for their embedded computing requirements. The “extended temperature” designation theoretically assures that the SBC will perform reliably in extreme temperature environments. If an SBC supplier labels their product as “extended temperature”, then it will be reliable in the field. Right?
Well, that depends. Are there commercial grade components being used on the board? Is the board 100% tested over the full temperature range? How does the SBC supplier define their extended temperature range?
Download this MythBuster technical paper to learn how to find a truly reliable solution for your extended temperature range embedded computing needs.
Whitepaper #2: The Invisible Foe – Understanding and Controlling ESD Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is indeed the “invisible foe” of electronic product quality and reliability. ESD includes spectacular electric sparks, but also less dramatic forms which may be neither seen nor heard, yet still are large enough to cause damage to sensitive electronic devices. These unseen events can be extremely costly. ESD damage lowers production yields, increases warranty rework, causes higher inventory requirements, and lowers customer satisfaction. According to industry experts, high tech OEMs lose at least 4% to 6% of annual gross sales due to ESD every year. Read this white paper and learn how you can help your organization identify potential sources of ESD loss, establish effective ESD controls, and improve product reliability.
