A new device for monitoring the environmental and operational stress profiles of products used in a wide range of environmental conditions has been developed. This device, as small as a typical credit card, is capable of recording and transmitting environmental and operational stress data. Prognostic and health monitoring models and algorithms can use this data to do prognostics of the monitored systems. This paper presents details of the construction and application of this monitoring device. Data of a field test are analyzed by sequential probability ratio test to demonstrate the failure prediction methodology.
