Thermal Solutions' OptoCooler HV37 module is designed to
address photonics cooling applications with larger heat pumping requirements.
At 85C, the OptoCooler HV37 can pump 4.5W or 107W/cm2 of heat in footprint of 6
mm2, is 0.6mm high and can create a temperature differential (deltaT) of up to
60C between its hot and cold sides. It operates at a maximum voltage of 7.7V,
making it compatible with commonly found board-level currents and voltages. At
25C, the device can create a deltaT of up to 50C with a maximum voltage of
OptoCooler HV37 is RoHS-compliant and is manufactured using gold-tin (AuSn)
solder, which enables assembly temperatures as high as 320C. These assembly temperatures make the HV37
module compatible with processes for packaging photonics devices that require
What if algae borne of fertilizer runoff that pollutes rivers and lakes could be harvested and used as biofuel feedstock? What if the leftovers could be recycled into farm soil nutrients, eliminating at least some of the need for artificial fertilizers in the first place? Western Michigan University researchers have a plan.
Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
