          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

          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

          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.
