Understanding MTBF

Enhancing Hardware Reliability by Engineering Dependability

In the world of computer hardware and other electronics, Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) attempts to quantify the dependability of components and systems. But in evaluating the potential total cost of ownership of IPC devices there are a number of other important factors to consider. Learn what MTBF ignores.


The Benefits Of Fanless Computing

Learn How You Can Reduce System Downtime

We asked IT professionals about the hardware problems that frustrate them the most, and discovered that they all had a single culprit: the fan. Here are just three of the key benefits to going fanless.

7 Questions For Successful COTS Prototyping

Custom-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) encourages companies to use existing components that are “designed to be redesigned” to get the benefits of custom (purpose built, product specific) together with the advantages of COTS (rapid prototyping and lower capital outlays).


Four Solutions For Dealing With Dust

Protect Your Computer From Particulate Rich Environments

Got dust? Most production environments do. If it isn’t dust, it’s grease, corrosives, or other particulate that harms electronic components and makes IT challenging in the manufacturing space. Airborne hazards break down computer fans and coat motherboards. The end result is system breakdown and production line downtime.

Hardware RAID vs. Software RAID

Hardware RAID vs. Software RAID

Find Out Which Is Right For You

Over the years software RAID has fought an uphill battle against hardware solutions that were seen as more capable of effectively distributing the data in a RAID array. But innovations in onboard processing are turning the tables in the Hardware RAID vs Software RAID battle, enabling fully-capable RAID arrays without the need for dedicated RAID hardware.


Choosing an Industrial Automation Computer

6 Considerations For Selecting The Perfect System

Given the growing need to cut costs, more and more control engineers are choosing to “Go Rogue.” They are tired of adjusting their needs to the product lines available from major manufacturers, paying for more than they need and not getting what they want.
