June 2014 – Scott Abrams Presents Paper “How to Use COTS Components in Extreme Cold”

Scott Abrams, President of The Omnicon Group, will be attending and presenting the paper “How to Use COTS Components in Extreme Cold” at the workshop on June 10th.

Aircraft manufacturers and military agencies often accept newly designed equipment that uses Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) electronic components because their life cycle costs are typically far lower than those qualified to full military specifications.

One challenge to designers is accommodating COTS components in equipment whose minimum ambient operating temperature is lower than that specified by the component manufacturer.

This paper provides background to this challenge and describes a novel approach used by The Omnicon Group where it is necessary to raise the equipment’s internal ambient temperature for a COTS component while avoiding the addition of components on the printed circuit board.
