How temperature affects system design: The basics

In system design, the temperature is a crucial factor to be considered. It can affect signal integrity, user equipment, and, ultimately, the user experience. Our systems have to work at -40°C (-40°F) for our customers in Canada and Russia, and at +45°C (104°F) for our customers in Dubai. This wide temperature range of 85°C (144°F) is very demanding on any…
