High Temperature Test for J&R Emergency Telephone
Many industries are calling for electronics that can operate reliably in harsh environments,including extremely high temperatures.
Traditionally, engineers had to rely on active or passive cooling when designing electronics that must function outside of normal temperature ranges,
but in some applications, cooling may not be possible—or it may be more appealing for the electronics to operate hot to improve system reliability or reduce cost.
This choice presents challenges that affect many aspects of the electronic system,including the silicon,packaging,qualification methodology,and design techniques.
Many applications,both established and emerging, require components that function in very high-temperature environments.
In the past,it was challenging to design such systems reliably due to the lack of devices rated for these kinds of harsh environments.
Now,J&Rs and supporting components designed and qualified to operate in these environments are available,saving engineering time and lowering the risk of failure.
Leveraging this new technology and following high-temperature design practices will enable high-performance systems to operate reliably in even more extreme environments than were previously feasible.
