    I m starting a project with Arduino board. I am expecting the board to continuously run for 3 months.

    Do you think board can stand that long.

    I dont see any reason why it should not. Just want to get it confirmed

    Yes, they will let much longer, even. Make sure you spec your hardware correctly and (possibly) build some fault tolerance into your application and you should be fine...

    Depends on environmental conditions (wet/dry/hot/cold) and handling but I've got Arduino boards I use for prototyping that a few years old and still going strong even though I take no care of them at all, they are just bare boards and get thrown in a box and then dragged out again, hooked up, programmed, use for a while and then back in the box, which is probably a lot worse than running them continuously.

    From the Atmega 382 manufacturer, the data retention is 20 years at 85ºC and 100 years at 25ºC! There is no problem, only check your hardware.
