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.

Dr. Azar has been an invitee to national bodies such as NSF, NIST and NEMI for organizing government and industry research goals in electronics cooling. He has also been an adjunct professor at a number of universities, including Northeastern University, and lectures worldwide in analytical and experimental methods in electronics cooling.

He holds more than 36 national and international patents, and has published more than 75 articles, 3 book chapters and a book entitled Thermal Measurements in Electronics Cooling. Dr. Azar has also served as the editor in chief of Electronics Cooling Magazine, the premier resource for practitioners in the field of electronics thermal management, from the publications founding in 1995 to 2006.


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.
