Re: I hope it is heat tolerant

Not even trying. When I was working in this field, back in the 1980s, the chief engineer of Caterpillar told us the underbonnet temperature in tractors could reach 150C in the Southern states in the summer, which made the design of ECUs rather difficult. Despite this, just about every modern Diesel outside a few small applications is now electronically managed.

Obviously there are mitigation methods that can be used, but there is no real problem in designing electronics for 110C operation.
