Ruggedized Electronics Design Basics: How to Increase Your PCBA Lifespan

Ruggedization is more than just a drop test. Make sure your equipment lasts.

Ruggedized Electronics Design Basics: How to Increase Your PCBA Lifespan

It's equally important to meet the environmental requirements and set behavior expectations for your products as it is to meet electrical specifications. From the enclosure onwards, ruggedized electronics need to withstand abuse and keep working. Electrical designs that cannot operate in expected environmental conditions will not meet customer objectives or be a viable long-term option. Make sure your PCBA can handle harsh environments now. With the help of this white paper, you will be able to:

  • Prevent field issues by setting system expectations early
  • Identify potential hazardous environments and mitigate their adverse effects through design modifications
  • Understand qualification and testing requirements for ruggedized boards
  • Utilize thermal management techniques at both the component and system level
  • Improve your knowledge of moisture mitigation, vibration damping, and shock mitigation.
