MATERIALS: Fujipoly’s SARCON SPG-30A is a newly developed high viscosity, thermal interface silicone compound that is designed to efficiently transfer heat from a board-level source to a heat sink or heat spreader. This high-performance material offers a thermal conductivity of 3.2 W/m°K and provides superior handling characteristics compared to traditional thermal grease and potting materials. The product also offers a new thermal management option for electronic devices that operate at higher frequencies.SARCON® SPG-30A exhibits near-zero compression force and easily conforms to all component shapes and sizes. These characteristics make SPG-30A ideal for filling large gaps around fragile circuit board solder points without causing damage or loss in performance. The form stable thermal compound requires no heat curing, will not cause corrosion on metal surfaces, and maintains all initial properties across a wide temperature range (-40 to 150C).
Fujipoly’s new SARCON® SPG-30A material is available in 30cc tubes, 330cc cartridges and 10L pails.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
