Tools and Methods for Effective Thermal Management of Electronics

The Tools and Methods for Effective Thermal Management of Electronics seminar will take place Tuesday, September 22, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the KeyPoint Credit Union Community Center in Santa Clara, CA. Dr. Kaveh Azar (Advanced Thermal Solutions) will explain both common and unusual heat problems and methods for determining their most effective solutions. Segments of the fundamentals of electronics cooling seminar will include: a review of the currently available and upcoming electronics cooling options; an overview of temperature and velocity measurement systems; analytical, computational and experimental thermal analysis techniques; thermal modeling tools and methods; heat sink selection; and other thermal knowledge areas to benefit engineers.

The Tools and Methods for Effective Thermal Management of Electronics seminar is ideal for engineers whose roles require an advanced understanding of electronics cooling and who need practical, focused methods for identifying and implementing optimal cooling solutions. The daylong program is also suited to project managers, chief technical officers and others who want insight into the thermal design issues that affect product performance.

Attendee spaces are limited and advanced registration is required. Tuition for the full day technical program is $495 US (includes breakfast and lunch). Discounts up to 50% are available for companies with multiple attendees and for other qualifiers.

Fundamentals of Electronics Cooling Seminar Agenda

  • Electronics Cooling Options
    The market is saturated with varied cooling options for thermal management of electronic systems. Oftentimes, selecting the right cooling solution is a daunting task for engineers who are not actively involved in thermal management. In this webinar, cooling options and their salient features are reviewed, providing the practicing engineer with a strong overview of what has been done and what the limitations of such options are.

  • Measuring Temperature and Velocity in Electronic Systems
    Participants will learn about the importance of measuring temperature and air velocity in a system, the instruments necessary for obtaining useful measurements and where temperature and airflow should be recorded.

  • Analytical, Computational and Experimental Thermal Analysis of an Electronic System
    Electronic systems are becoming increasingly dense with more powerful components. The junction temperatures of those components often determine the fate of a product. Products designed with the most components and adequate cooling, in the quickest time-to-market, are often the most successful. This course will provide design engineers with advanced, fast and accurate thermal design techniques that will help them efficiently use modeling and testing tools to determine device junction temperatures and speed time-to-market.

  • Basics and Options in Thermal Modeling and Analysis of Electronic Systems
    Modeling and simulations are the cornerstone of any successful product launch in electronics products. Engineers are faced with three modeling options, Analytical, Computational and Experimental. In this tutorial, these modeling options are reviewed and their application to a problem domain is discussed.

  • Heat Sink Selection Made Easy
    As heat dissipation needs for electronic devices grow rapidly, choosing the right heat sink the first time is essential. With so many application requirements and heat sink options, this can be a daunting task. In this webinar, attendees will learn about the importance of system airflow and its impact on heat sink design; attachment methods and how to solve design challenges thermally and mechanically; and how to make the right custom or off-the-shelf heat sink choice for your application and budget.

  • Methodologies for Fan Characterization and Deployment within a System
    Exponential increases in power dissipation are forcing engineers to rely more on fans as the solution to their thermal challenges. But fans are also common points of failure within a system. As the choice and use of fans become critical to system functionality, knowledge of fan characterization is essential. Participants will be provided with solid methodologies for characterizing fans and deploying them within a system.

  • Selecting and Implementing Liquid Cooling within Electronic Systems
    The use of liquid cooling systems is becoming more practical and effective for managing skyrocketing increases in power dissipation. But how do you decide when you need to cool with liquid? How do you find the right liquid cooling system for your application? This webinar provides the best practices for implementing a liquid cooling system.
