Laird Technologies released the latest version of the AZTEC thermoelectric module (TEM) simulation software. AZTEC is a user-friendly tool that can speed up product development by running simulations on a TEM and viewing its expected output performance based on a given set of thermal and electrical operating points. The tool is available online now.
Laird Technologies published another application note titled Thermoelectric Assemblies and Modules for Telecommunication Applications. The application note explains why Thermoelectric Modules (TEMs) and Thermoelectric Assemblies (TEAs) are ideal thermal management solutions for many telecommunication applications such as laser diodes and laser pump diodes, cable television (CATV) laser diodes, avalanche photodiodes (ADPs), GPS backup cellular networks, and Battery Backup Unit (BBU) systems in base stations.
Laird Technologies published an application note titled Thermoelectric Modules for Charge-Coupled Devices. The application note describes the reason Thermoelectric Modules (TEMs) are the only effective thermal management solution for Charge-Coupled Devices (CCDs) used in astronomy, night vision, high-speed, medical, and quality control camera applications. The application note is the newest in a series describing the role of Thermal Management in numerous market segments.
Laird Technologies published a white paper about the sources of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) in automotive systems. The technical paper is titled, Automotive EMI Shielding – Controlling Automotive Electronic Emissions and Susceptibility with Proper EMI Suppression Methods. The white paper discusses various electronic systems found on automobiles, and the need of containing and suppressing their EMI potential with each other through EMI shielding and ferrite solutions.
Laird Technologies has enhanced their AZTEC online thermoelectric module (TEM) simulation software tool. AZTEC selects the optimal TEM(s) for trial from a given set of input variables based on application attributes that the user specifies. The program also contains an analysis worksheet, which simulates how the TEM(s) will function under a specific set of operating conditions.
