PRLog - Jul. 6, 2012 - NORWOOD, Mass. -- Each month during the third quarter of 2012, Advanced Thermal Solutions will present a free technical webinar on a different topic in the dynamic world of electronics cooling. The topics are as follows:
“Using Thermal Interface Materials to Improve Heat Sink Thermal Performance”
July 26, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. ET
To cool hotter components, engineers are using larger fans and heat sinks, and increasing surface areas. These hardware enhancements can add significantly to design costs. In many cases, cooling performance can be improved by using a higher performance interface material between the case and the heat sink. Participants will learn the importance of lowering thermal resistance using thermal interface materials, or TIMs, and the different kinds of TIMs available from the market.
“Air Jet Impingement Cooling”
August 23, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. ET
Ongoing increases in power in devices such as processors and IGBTs mean that higher capacity cooling methods are needed to remove excess heat. One such method is the jet impingement of a liquid or gas onto a surface on a continuous basis. Lab experiments at ATS have shown up to a 40% improvement in cooling achieved using this method. This webinar will explore jet impingement cooling theory, implementation and best practices.
“LED Thermal Management in Commercial and Consumer Lighting Applications”
September 27, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. ET
Excess heat directly affects both short-term and long-term LED performance. The short-term effects are color shift and reduced light output, while the long-term effect is accelerated lumen depreciation and thus shortened useful life. Participants will learn how to diagnose and solve thermal issues in consumer and commercial LED applications.
Each of these one-hour online tutorials will include detailed visuals, real world examples, instructions, definitions and references. Audience questions will be answered by the presenters during and after the presentation. One or more ATS Doctorate-level thermal engineers will be presenting live.
There is no cost to attend these ATS webinars, but virtual seating is limited. Registration is available online at http://www.qats.com, or by calling 1-781-949-2522.
