AT&S enables “cool” designs for miniaturised high-power applications

Embedded and inserted heat pipes significantly improve heat dissipation Miniaturisation and increasing power densities are major concerns for modern electronic applications. The lifetime of electronic applications can be dramatically reduced by the increase of the working temperatures by just a few degrees. Further, the insulation of the whole printed circuit …

It pays to stay cool when designing measures to prolong the lifetime of electronic components

The temperature range of individual electronic components impairs or prolongs the lifetime of an entire system setup enormously. With increasing density, more compact designs and ever-increasing computing power, there is a growing need for selective cooling that is carefully chosen in advance to counter the rising power losses in components. …
