There are two main types of biopolymers: those that come from living organisms; and, those which need to be polymerized but come from renewable resources. Both types are used in the production of bioplastics. Biopolymers that are present in, or created by, living organisms include carbohydrates and proteins.These can be used in the production of pl...

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 ...
