Rugged Design for Harsh Environments

Our products are designed to operate in the harshest environments and are an ideal choice for customers seeking off-the-shelf availability with field-proven survivability. We take a bottom-up approach to ruggedization, designing, assembling, and testing our products with the end user in mind.

At our state-of-the-art board assembly operation, we handle increasingly complex boards with uncompromising quality, ensuring complete component traceability down to the individual PCB serial number. We use the best inspection technologies and meticulous quality criteria to ensure that every solder joint is perfectly formed. We then apply best-in-class conformal coat and underfill practices to protect the integrity of the circuit. Our automated Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) testing ensures that every unit is ready to perform in harsh conditions.

Choose our rugged products for reliable performance in even the toughest environments.

Flight Certification Support

Many of our rugged embedded products are suitable for aviation and aerospace applications that require FAA or EASA flight certification. Our modular designs have undergone extensive field testing, providing thousands of flight hours to the COSA® product family. For many of our boards and modules, we have produced certification artifacts and undergone SOI audits with customers or Designated Engineering Representatives (DERs) to support their customer flight certification efforts. We can also take additional products or functions through the pathway to certification, as needed for your program.

Since each configuration and customer requirement is unique, we recommend speaking to an NAI representative to learn more about our flight certification support services.
