00 Wide Temperature Assurance Service (WiTAS) Wide Temperature Embedded Computing Applications of embedded computing systems continue to improve the quality and convenience of our lives. As the global population increases, there are greater demands on resources, and the need for automation and computing capability in remote regions will grow. To address a demand for computers that operate in extreme environments, platforms must follow design methodologies for wide temperature range use. In addition, testing and product qualification must follow more stringent criteria to assure continuous operation. As the core of any embedded system, the CPU board plays perhaps the most critical role and, therefore, requires careful design and validation for wide temperature capabilities. AAEON has been designing and manufacturing quality embedding products for over two decades. Our accumulated experience in all aspects of the embedded electronics market puts us in a strong position to develop wide temperature CPU boards and systems. AAEON’s WiTAS (Wide Temperature Assurance Service) program produces boards in two temperature range categories: -20°C to 70°C (-4°F ~ 158°F) = WiTAS 1 -40ºC 85ºC OK -40°C to 85°C (-40°F ~ 185°F) = WiTAS 2 Processes for WiTAS Production Assembled CPU Power-On Wide Temperature Full Function Test WiTAS 2 Verified Board Function Test Screen Test Products WiTAS 1 Production (-40ºC to 85ºC) OK -20ºC 70ºC Wide Temperature Assurance Service (WiTAS) Assembled CPU Power-On Wide Temperature Full Function Test WiTAS 1 Verified Board Function Test Screen Test Products (-20ºC to 70ºC) WiTAS 2 Production -40ºC 85ºC OK Assembled CPU Power-On Wide Temperature Full Function Test WiTAS 2 Verified Board Function Test Screen Test Products (-40ºC to 85ºC) Boards that pass -20°C to 70°C (-4°F ~ 158°F) thermal tests are given a WiTAS 1 designation, and boards that endure -40°C to 85°C (-40°F ~ 185°F) tests are assigned a WiTAS 2 designation, as part of AAEON’s special service assurance of wide temperature durability and OK -20ºC 70ºC reliability. This, in conjunction with the use of durable components throughout the duration of testing, allows AAEON to enhance the longevity of its boards and systems.
