LED Thermal Management: Passive Solutions for High Heat Flux Applications

Dan Pounds, Pete Ritt
Advanced Cooling Technologies

As LED applications continue to expand beyond lighting and sensors, the power levels and heat dissipation requirements will also continue to increase.  Thermal management is becoming a major design issue for high-power LED systems.  The size and weight of conventional bulk metal heat sinks cannot satisfy shrinking packaging constraints.  MORE

The Five Most Common Mistakes Engineers Make In Thermal Modeling

ThermoAnalytics, Inc.

Engineers and designers are increasingly relying on modeling solutions to prototype, test, prove and experiment as a means to more accurately predict how an application will respond to various thermal conditions. While these methods are designed and promoted to save manufacturers time and money, five common mistakes made during the modeling phase can actually cost you more money, add time to the design cycle, and ultimately hurt product performance.
