We’ll be hosting another of our monthly webinar on 4-15-21 at 2 PM EST. This one covers how to choose the right heat sink attachment for component packages of all sizes and shapes. Our speaker will be Product Engineering Manager, Greg Wong.
Choosing the right heat sink is part of deploying a good thermal management solution, the other part is the attachment method. Whether clip, push pin, z-clip, or other, the attachment has an important impact on how effective the thermal solution is. This webinar will cover these issues including attachments for rectangular packages increasingly used in SoC and SiP packages. A handy technical reference sheet and white paper on attachment types will be provided to those who register. This webinar, presented by ATS Product Engineering Manager, Greg Wong and will address all these issues and more. The webinar is 30 minutes in length with time for questions and answers afterward online and after the webinar concludes. The webinar is no charge to attend, but, we do ask you to register:
Heat pipes and vapor chambers are often lumped into liquid cooling, but, they are not actuallycooling they are in fact moving heat from a hot location to another location where it is dissipated. And how they operate, how to choose them, and how to deploy them is a very important part of the thermal engineer’s toolbox. And we have a free webinar on this topic to help train you.
When is it best to use a heat pipe and when is it best to use a vapor chamber?
The webinar will be recorded, and for those who register, we will provide the recording for your review.
While the webinar lasts about an hour, we’ll have about 30-minutes for a Q&A afterward. Don’t delay, sign up today at the button below! NOTE: this webinar had been scheduled for 10/15 but due to scheduling conflicts, our team needed to move it to 10/22.

Maintaining the proper operating temperature for electric vehicle (EV) batteries is a critical component of the spread of EV across the world. If batteries are too hot, then the batteries will degrade faster, and safety becomes a concern. At lower temperatures, battery capacity and performance suffer.
Thermal management of batteries is important for EV to live
up to the potential that manufacturers promise and that consumers desire. But,
how can the temperature be maintained at the proper operating levels during use
and how can manufacturers cope with the varied environments that the vehicles
will operate in?
At temperatures below 0°C (32°F), batteries lose charge due to slower chemical reactions taking place in the battery cells. The result is a significant loss in power, acceleration and driving range, and higher potential for battery damage during charging.
At temperatures above 30°C (86°F) the battery performance degrades, posing a real issue if a vehicle’s air conditioner is needed for passengers. The result is an impact on power density and reduced acceleration response.
Temperatures above 40°C (104°F) can lead to serious and irreversible damage in the battery. At even higher temperatures, e.g. 70-100°C, thermal runaway can occur. This is triggered when the runaway temperature is reached. The result is a self-heating chain reaction in a battery cell that causes its destruction while propagating to adjacent cells.
This hour-long webinar from thermal management expert Dr. Kaveh Azar, founder and CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS), presents some of the techniques that design engineers have employed to keep EV batteries within the proper temperature range both during operation and charging.
