Hi Stuart. The units of thermal resistance are: degrees Celsius/watt.

Thank you.

Thanks Ed, interesting post. 

What are the units of your measure of thermal resistance?

Best,

Stuart.

I agree! Very interesting article on how by integrating functions with existing parts, improved performance with a smaller footprint is possible: I thought it was fascinating how the article explains its example of products having fan blades that traditionally serve as a cooler are manufactured from magnetic materials that turn it into a rotor part of the motor as well. It seem like a natural combination of functions but it took someone visualizing how to integrate two functions using parts that have not served in that capacity in previous designs.

Ed, this is a great design story.  You guys really looked at the problem in a new and innovative way.  The result is really an advance.

Today, no matter where in the world the device is located, it can call home and ask for the latest-and-greatest firmware with bug fixes and feature updates.
A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
Design, simulation, manufacturability, and prototyping: All of these phases are being pushed forward and progressively by underlying technologies.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
