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
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
