Abstract

This article provides a historical review of corrosion problems in military electronic equipment. It describes the importance of design for corrosion control of an electronic black box used to contain electrical equipment that provides various functions. The article illustrates corrosion control aspects, such as the position of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and proper location of connectors for insertion of the PCBs. It discusses various materials and alloys considered for connectors, PCB contacts, and circuits. The article concludes with a discussion on the effects of contaminants on the electronic black box.
