Electronic applications requiring more than Heat Dissipation: How can you fulfill their need?

By Mark DeMeuse

Thermal management has always been a major concern in the design of high frequency, high power electronic devices. For example, historically, in many power amplifier designs, the vast majority of the power that needs to be dissipated is from the high power field effect transistors, or FET's, themselves. In these cases, the high power dissipation ...

Thermoelectric Devices Cooling and Power Generation

Thermoelectricity is the direct conversion of temperature gradient to electric voltage, and vice-versa. There are several potential applications of thermoelectricity, ranging from clean noiseless cooling, to waste-power harvesting in automotives. The performance of thermoelectric devices is still a challenge, and many approaches have been res...

Why are TPUs getting back into the 'rat-race' of the Sports & Leisure industry?

By Thibaud Deleger

From the elastomeric materials, side significant changes occurred in these past years, with many more options offered to product designers and engineers. Vulcanized rubbers were the first to be developed, and therefore have a long history in multiple uses. Flexible PVC entered the game, and thanks to their cost competitive pricing and almost infini...
