From automotive electronic control units to weather satellites and defense systems, electronics failures can bring communications and critical functions to a sudden halt. Experts specializing in electronics failure analysis can list a host of reasons for various malfunctions, but one of the most common causes is simple moisture. Because water and electronics do not mix well, several strategies exist to protect mission-critical components from moisture and condensation.

Choosing the right hermetic sealing technology for sealed electrical packages keeps vital applications up and running.
