Design engineers are dealing with more heat problems than ever before and the task of mitigating those thermal issues within cost and time constraints has never been more challenging. Dr. Kaveh Azar, a global electronics cooling expert, will explain thermal management in a full day, eight-module course that will provide a thorough, technical overview of cooling basics and the thermal management solution processes.
Attendees at the Thermal Management of Electronics Course will be taken from the basic definition of electronics cooling and why thermal management is required; to how to calculate certain parameters; to how to accurately measure them; and to where and how to use simulation tools like CFD, for effective thermal management.
These topics include:
Fundamentals of Electronics Cooling – what it is; why it needs to be considered; how it is approached and what needs to be considered
Required Calculations in Thermal Management – a set of calculations and respective procedures for analytical modeling of components, boards and systems
Effective Characterization – The Role of Measurement in Thermal Management – basic principles of measurement and proper practices for temperature, velocity, pressure and heat flux
The Role of Software in Thermal Management – CFD Simulation – understanding the fundamentals of CFD simulation and reviewing the best practices in modeling electronic components, boards and systems
Heat Sink Design and Thermal Interface Selection – a review of the heat sink design process and the role of thermal interface material in cooling of electronic components.
Fan Characterization and Its Deployment in Electronic Systems – a review of fan types, their characteristics and best deployment practices, including fan characterization.
Vapor Chamber and Jet Impingement for Thermal Management of High Power Electronics – use of vapor chambers in electronics cooling, along with jet impingement characteristics and its heat transfer benefits/shortfalls.
The Salient Features of Market-Developed Cooling Solutions – cooling solutions that have been developed across the electronics industry, from vacuum tubes to today’s sophisticated electronics.
coolingZONE LED 2012, the only LED event dedicated to the thermal management of LED Lighting, will be held in Berlin, Germany May 29 - June 1, 2012. This event will feature experts in the field of LED thermal management to share their latest developments, research, and practical approaches to LED cooling. Engineers who attend cooilngZONE LED events will learn about today’s LED cooling challenges, where the solutions will be found, and who can help them with effective products and services to manage today’s thermal challenges.
The coolingZONE LED 2012 agenda includes a full day of technical presentations from leading experts in industry and academia. Short technical sessions will be provided by corporations who are advancing the thermal management community with innovative and practical thermal solutions. Multiple short courses are offered as an integral part of the program for in depth training.
Engineers, engineering managers or executives, chief technical officers, project managers, professors, students or anyone who wants insight into the thermal design issues related to LED Lighting should attend the coolingZONE LED 2012 event.
