Military equipment - such as shipboard, surveillance, mobile artillery and control stations, combat aircraft and unmanned air vehicles—often consists of highly technological and sensitive electronics. It is likely that these electronics could be exposed to harsh environments, including extreme heat, dust, moisture, shock and vibration. Within these harsh environments, Card or Wedge Loks are used for printed circuit board retention and thermal management to ensure continued reliability and performance.
