PRESENTATION: Thermal Management Considerations at the Raw Card Level
Today's thermal challenges are more challenging than ever - because products are being manufactured smaller, faster, hotter than ever. Jim Barry of PCB Technologies Ltd., an industry veteran with nearly 40 years of engineering, manufacturing and sales in printed circuit board technogies will be presenting on the pros and cons of a variety of heat mitigation techniques. Below is a short exerpt:
"There are many creative ways to remove heat from the PCB, even at the specific component location. Traditionally, heat removal has been done at the component level with finned heat sinks placed over a specific component location. Unfortunately, this creates large, cumbersome designs and/or requires some imaginative design engineering at a box level build. The second most common methodology has been to apply a metal back to the whole PCB which can connect to the chassis and draw away some of the thermal energy. The downside of these two typical techniques is that size and weight of some of these heat removal methods can also pose a challenge, especially when the world of electronic packaging is shrinking, not growing. Smaller packaging and weight are now required for products such as night vision goggles, UAVs and soldier-worn technologies, to name a few. One of the simplest and most common ways that is often overlooked as ......."
Those new to the electronics industry will appreciate Jim's conversational presentation style, while the seasoned design engineers will value the degree of technical content provided. So bring your hunger and bring your questions! It's going to be a great event!

Mark Your Calendars: 2018 NE Expo and Tech Session
We're thrilled to have been able to move up the 2018 NE Expo and Tech Forum a few months ... distancing ourselves a bit from the year end Holidays and into some (still) warmer weather! The 2018 Expo will be free to those attending the free Tech Sessions. We will be soliciting White Papers in the coming months and will share more details as to the speaker line-up as available. For now, just keep your calendar cleared! You won't want to miss this!
