3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in the IEC 60068 series, as well as the following, apply.
electronic module
functional block which contains individual electronic elements and /or electronic packages, to be used in a next level assembly NOTE An individual module having an application-specific function, including electronic, optoelectronic,mechanical or other elements. The module typically provides protection of its elements and packages to assure the required level of reliability.
Electronic modules may be categorized by signal interface, for example:
– wired module: a module which has only electrical interfaces (majority of present day modules)
– wireless module: a module which has a wireless interface
– opto-electronic module: a module which has an optoelectronic interface
– sensor module: a module which can input physical information
– actuator module: a module which could output physical information
distance in height between the lowest and highest leads or terminals when the module is in its seating plane
operating temperature range
range of the ambient temperature at which an electronic module may be used continuously
storage temperature range
range of the ambient temperature at which an electronic module may be stored continuously
rated voltage
maximum d.c. voltage or the root-mean square value of an a.c. voltage which may be applied continuously to an electronic module at any temperature within the operating temperature range
