The Need for Rugged Products
Ruggedized products are conceived for use in severe conditions, environments where excessive moisture or dryness, extreme temperatures, high levels of vibration, wind, or lack of atmosphere are the rule. Internal components of these specialized products require the same degree of ruggedization as exteriors.
With an increased military presence throughout the world, as well as our dependence on electronics for critical functions, it is no surprise the defense and electronics industries are turning to ruggedized electronics. The market has expanded to over $500 million dollars through the end of 2011.
