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
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
