I know this may seem obvious to many out there, but I am really not understanding the different levels of reliability between the development boards (photon, boron, etc) and the production boards (e series and the new b series).
I am asking primarily in terms of reliability (longevity, resistance to heat/vibration, likelihood to still be purring along in 10 yrs, etc).
Just to be clear, I’m not asking in terms of other concerns like guaranteed availability of large qty for manufacturing in a products lifecycle. Or, ease/flexibility of integrating into a product’s circuit board. Those are certainly concerns, just not what I am driving at in this question.
In terms of reliability is it reasonable to expect a boron to hold up in a production environment where temperatures aren’t extreme? This is assuming it was inserted into something like this: https://store.ncd.io/product/screw-terminal-breakout-board-for-particle-photon-or-particle-electron/, which avoids use of any DuPont wiring or breadboards.
thanks in advance
