THERMATTACH(reg) T410 thermally conductive, double-sided adhesive tape is for bonding heat sinks onto plastic IC packages. T410 thermal tape features a silicone-based, pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side of a 0.002-inch aluminum foil carrier. The tape's other side is a thermally loaded, high-bond strength acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive that bonds securely to metal heat sinks. Applications include bonding heat sinks to molded plastic ball grid array packages and other ICs that typically dissipate from 1 to 5W of heat.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
