Next Webinar Shows How to Properly Measure and Analyze Temperatures in Electronic Systems

ATS WebinarsThe upcoming webinar “How to Perform and Understand Temperature Measurement in Electronic Systems” will be held this Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 2pm ET. The free, prerecorded technical presentation will deepen attendees understanding of the importance of temperature measurement in electronic systems. Attendees will learn about each of the instruments needed for measuring temperature and interpreting temperature data. Key locations will be identified where thermal testing should be conducted in order to obtain the most accurate and actionable results.

The webinar will be taught by Dr. Kaveh Azar, CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. Since 1985, Dr. Azar has been an active participant in the electronics thermal community and has served as the organizer, general chair and the keynote speaker at national and international conferences sponsored by ASME, IEEE and AIAA. In addition, he has been the recipient of the IEEE SEMITHERM Significant Contributor Award in the thermal management of electronics systems.

ATS Offers Arrow Customers a Half-Day of Free Access to its Thermal Characterization Lab

arrow_ats

As part of the new distribution agreement between Arrow Electronics and Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc., ATS is offering a half-day of free, no-obligation use of its unique Thermal Characterization Laboratory to Arrow customers. The Thermal Characterization Lab, located at ATS headquarters in Norwood, MA, allows engineers to perform thermal testing on heat sinks, fans and fan trays, PCBs, blades, enclosures, or complete systems. Experienced engineers, board and system designers can perform the tests themselves, or consult with an ATS thermal engineer at no cost during their 4 hours of laboratory time.

ATS’ Thermal Characterization Lab features a full range of research-quality instruments, including open and closed loop wind tunnels, for ambient and elevated temperature testing, all with PC-driven controls and automated data collection. The lab is also outfitted with a full array of the company’s sensor systems and thermocouples, which can be used to characterize electronic products under variable airflow and temperature conditions.

Liquid Crystal Thermography

In addition, the lab also features a JEDEC approved component thermal testing facility for conducting multitude of device level testing per JEDEC standards. The facility also provides a complete liquid crystal and IR thermography systems for non-invasive temperature mapping to 0.1oC with one micron-level spatial resolution; and a liquid cooling facility for complete testing and characterization of cold-plates, cooling effect and proof of concept testing.

 

“Most of today’s electronics have thermal situations that can turn into big problems if left alone. The easiest, lowest cost way to manage this is to conduct an accurate thermal characterization of the problem at hand,” said Kaveh Azar, Ph.D., President and CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. “If you have the right facility and associated know-how, you can often complete your test in a half-day, then you can readily assess what is the best thermal solution for your application. For engineers short on time and resources, we believe this free use of ATS’ Thermal Characterization Lab could be very helpful.”

Touch Screen Scanner Simplifies Temperature and Air Velocity Measurement for Thermal Characterization

ATVS-NxTThe ATVS-NxT hot wire anemometer is a fully-portable scanner that provides rapid and highly precise temperature and air velocity measurements for the thermal characterization of electronic packages. The ATVS-NxTis member of our temperature & velocity measurement instruments, along with the ATVS-2020 and eATVS-8, but its touch screen feature and embedded pc speaks to its truly unique capability.

The unique touch screen feature allows users to control the stageVIEW software at their fingertips, quickly acquiring temperature and air velocity data, analytics, and reports. It includes an 8 GB hard drive and a CD/RW drive. Ethernet connections allow the scanner to be operated over an intranet or the Internet.

The ATVS-NxT supports up to 32 sensors for simultaneous, single-point air velocity and temperature measurements in environments where single or multipoint measurements are required. The sensors are calibrated for both low (natural convection) and high velocity flow rates.

The easy to use ATVS-NxT collects heat and airflow data useful to heat sink manufacturers, IC houses, board designers, and other electronics manufacturers. The scanner’s single-point measurement of temperature and air velocity provides faster, more precise data enabling more efficient thermal management solutions.

2013 Webinar Calendar Released

ATS will provide two free technical webinars each month in 2013. Presented by PhD-level thermal engineers, each event will focus on an important area of electronics thermal management. The tutorials will provide practical training and insights for all engineers, designers and program managers who want to learn more about electronics cooling.

Most of the ATS webinars are scheduled to run no longer than 15 minutes in respect to the time demands on todays engineers. But each quarter of 2013 will conclude with a one-hour event that presents deeper training on a crucial heat management topic.

Every webinar is free of charge. Attendees can submit questions during the live presentations. For later viewing, each webinar will be archived on the ATS website for free streaming at the engineers convenience. Questions and comments to the recorded webinars will be responded to by ATS engineers.
