Rugged Embedded Design, Ready for Extremes
Harsh environments wreak havoc on electronics. Workstations, laptops, and other devices work without issue in a climate-controlled office. However, hostile temperatures (subzero or Saharan), high humidity, and dust, can be very problematic. Moreover, weather isn’t the only factor with which field professionals must contend. Shocks and vibration can also damage components. Extreme conditions demand extreme hardware; component failure during mission-critical operations cannot be tolerated. Many industries benefit from, if not require, rugged electronics. Military and industrial use is obvious, but professionals in medical, oil and gas, science, transportation, and other industries also need hardware that stands up to punishing situations.
