Miniaturization of electronic systems is often an enabling factor for demanding aerospace missions. This is also true for avionics elements, where miniaturization often goes hand in hand with a reduction of power consumption which permits achieving further mass savings.
- Susceptibility of line replaceable units to ionizing radiation as a result of ongoing component miniaturization
- Inadequate power and cooling needs
- Inadequate physical separation of miniaturized systems
