Although some high temperature devices have been available in the market in the past, historically this field has been limited due to the lack of commercially available components designed to operate reliably above 125[degrees]C, lack of capital equipment for fabrication and specialization test facilities to build high temperature electronics, immaturity of certain required material technologies and processes, shortage of high volume applications willing to help fund the expense of new device development, and some applications requiring demonstrated reliability of high temperature electronics that justifies the higher cost of these devices.
