When integrating Single Board Computers (SBCs) into industrial, military, and aerospace systems, engineers typically specify an extended temperature range SBC for their embedded computing requirements. The “extended temperature” designation theoretically assures that the SBC will perform reliably in extreme temperature environments. If an SBC supplier labels their product as “extended temperature”, then it will be reliable in the field. Right?

Well, that depends. Are there commercial grade components being used on the board? Is the board 100% tested over the full temperature range? How does the SBC supplier define their extended temperature range?
