Using Thermoelectric Coolers in Electronics Cooling
When a DC current is applied to the circuit, the thermoelectric module can work as a cooler or heater, depending on the current’s direction. A thermoelectric cooler (TEC), or solid state heat pump, transfers heat from one side of the device to the other side against the temperature gradient.
How Obstruction Effects the Performance of a Fan
Proper performance of the fan, irrespective of its type, is the corner-stone of a cooling system. Yet, as engineers are designing such systems, or when systems with fans are deployed on premises, it is common that little attention is given to the placement of the fan or to objects in its vicinity. Thus, the fans tend not to work at their optimum stages.
Localized Cooling Using Cold Plates
Many applications in electronics cooling require a cold plate to remove heat from discrete components laid out on a board. In these circumstances, it is more efficient that the liquid does not completely fill the cold plate, but is only transferred to areas that need to be cooled.
Two-Resistor Compact Modeling for Multiple Die and Multi-Chip Packages
For an analyst, the attractiveness of the two-resistance compact model is that there is no need to model the complex 3D details of the package; it is simple and intuitive. However, the challenge in the derivation of two-resistor models comes from the complexity brought about by multiple die junctions, power and thermal resistances.
