Effective Cooling Solutions using Heatsinks By GD Rectifiers
The continuously growing integration and performance densities of electronic components is resulting in higher losses which cause an increase in component temperature. Thermal management is becoming more and more important and is also often underestimated by design engineers. It is a well known fact that the assumed service life of an electronic component increases by approximately 50% for each 10°C temperature increase. For electronic components to fulfil their long-life function they
