Extreme-Temperature and Harsh-Environment Electronics 2nd Edition

Physics, technology and applications

Vinod Kumar Khanna

Electronic devices and circuits are employed by a range of industries in unfriendly conditions, such as exposure to extreme temperatures, humidity, or radiation. This second edition describes the diverse measures needed to make electronics capable of coping with such situations and exploiting any new phenomena that take place under these specific conditions. The book explains the need for operating electronics beyond conventional limits in applications such as aerospace and automotive engineering.

It explores GaAs, SiC, GaN and diamond electronics, superconductive electronics, superconductor-based power delivery; moisture-proof, chemical-corrosion-resistant, radiation hardened and vibration-tolerant electronics; and also covers the prevention of electromagnetic interference, the operation of sensors in hostile conditions, and jamming and hacking mitigation techniques. The book provides up-to-date coverage of the topics for students, academics and industrial researchers as well as professional experts.

Key Features

  • Provides comprehensive and practical coverage of electronic materials, devices, circuits, and systems in extreme temperature environments
