Measuring Heat Flux from a Component on a PCB
It is vital to understand heat dissipation from electronic components during their operation in order to properly design the cooling system and selection of the appropriate heat removal methodologies. Heat dissipation from a component in an electronic package not only influences its own performance but also affects the performance of neighboring components, leading to their failure. This article will discuss a new method of measuring the heat flux from a component on a PCB.
Design Parameters in Immersion Cooling
Two phase immersion cooling can be a viable option to cool power electronics and high performance computers. However, non-thermal aspects play a significant role in the proper functioning of the system. This article will review these parameters that thermal engineers need to understand in order for a successful implementation of two phase immersion cooling technology.
Industry Developments: Cooling With Lasers
While electronics inside laser systems may require thermal management, lasers may also one day have a major role in cooling electronic components. Such developments are already underway, as researches are hoping laser cooling could lead to a new form of computer chip that could cool itself on its own. This article will discuss the promosing future that lasers have in the electronics cooling field.
