Life span and components
Life cycle management
To find a combination of hardware and operating system in the embedded PC that is available and stable for an industrial lifetime of up to fifteen years is not easy. While a consumer computer usually has the next generation launched every six months, an embedded computer is sometimes expected to have a life span up to twenty times that long. The evolution moves quickly and all different components included in an embedded solution needs to be professionally handled. Hectronic carefully selects components specified for embedded applications giving up to seven years lifetime.
