Operational DMD Temperature and Landed Duty Cycle interact to affect the DMD’s usable life, and this interaction can be exploited to reduce the impact that an asymmetrical Landed Duty Cycle has on the DMD’s usable life. This is quantified in the de-rating curve shown in Figure 1. The importance of this curve is that:
In practice, this curve specifies the Maximum Operating DMD Temperature that the DMD should be operated at for a give long-term average Landed Duty Cycle.
