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
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
