Where are the Innovations in Thermal Interface Materials

Where are the Innovations in Thermal Interface Materials

Thermal management is one of the most important topics in a wide range of applications; from electric vehicle battery packs through to consumer electronics, there is a pressing need to dissipate heat efficiently. Thermal interface materials (TIM) come in numerous types and play a crucial role in the thermal transfer from a heat source. This article looks at what the major innovations are for these materials and why those developments are significant.

Data Processing and Networks Killing the Planet?

Data Processing and Networks Killing the Planet?

The laws of thermodynamics warn us that making electricity will always be less than 100% efficient. However rapidly we transition to renewables, it is therefore a good thing that both electronic and electrical engineering hardware have been trending to the use of much less electricity.
