Engineering Dependability: Enhancing Hardware Reliability Through Thoughtful Design and Application Understanding

Mean time between failure (MTBF) design requirements differ drastically between consumer-grade and industrial PCs (IPCs), as the latter are intended to withstand extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI), and a host of other rigors to reduce system downtime. But outside of component selection, I/O configuration, form factor, and materials, a solid understanding of how to calculate MTBF is necessary before system integrators can choose the right IPC solution for their next design.

In this white paper from Logic Supply, industrial system integrators will learn:

  • How to calculate MTBF rates against real-life installation parameters versus ideal laboratory conditions
  • How to spot unreliable vendor MTBF data
  • About fan-less PC designs from Logic Supply designed to withstand the thermal, material, EMI, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) challenges of deployment in almost any environment
