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
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
