What Are The Different Types of Liquid Cooling?

Due to higher densities, specific heat capacities, and thermal conductivities, liquids are generally much better cooling agents than gases. Compared to air, water has a heat carrying capacity 3,500 times higher than that of air, and a thermal conductivity 24 times greater. This makes liquid cooling far more efficient than air cooling. Liquid Cooling A […]

Air Cooled vs. Liquid Cooled: The Differences

When engineers design an electronic device and pack scores of components onto circuit boards and into enclosures, it is guaranteed the device will generate heat in addition to doing its intended job. In high power applications, the problem of unwanted heat magnifies. Heat is the result of inefficiencies in the device’s component parts — its […]

The Effect of Temperature on the Life of Power Electronic Devices

Electronic components including solid state devices, resistors, capacitors, inductors and others are all susceptible to failure from overheating. The expected life of any component, and of any final product built from those components, is affected by the temperature at which they operate. In fact, a temperature increase of 10 degrees Centigrade is generally accepted as […]
