Here I discuss how system integrators often overlook environmental suitability criteria and assume IP65 is sufficient for usage in outside environments with heavily varying temperature and humidity conditions.
Tracking Trends in Embedded Technology
As applications become increasingly mobile, power saving becomes less about conservation of fossil fuels and saving the environment, and more about the consequential battery life.
We all know the embedded computing industry is some years behind mainstream desktop computing. Longevity being such a critical factor, we take pride in demonstrating products where we’ve maintained availability, unchanged, for more than a decade.
With recent announcements that Windows will stop supporting XP Professional and Home versions, is obsolescence on the horizon for XPe?
