What happens to board when run over temperature?

    Hi All,

    I have a small Rabbit CPU based board, it's rated max temp. to 50C,
    but in the field it can easily go up to 60C in the cabinet it's stored
    in. What can actually happen to the board when operating above it's
    rated temp. (e.g. RAM errors etc.)

  2. Anything. Literally.

    For all anybody but the makers of that board and the parts know about
    it, it could explode, melt or just keep on working just fine except if
    used on by your boss, on a Thursday, May 12th, when it'll exhibit
    exactly the one bug you bet your job on having solved for good.

    Or maybe it'll do none of the above and actually behave in a completely
    unexpected way.
