IMAPS-UK Altogether, better connected!

Thermal Management Online Conference

Wednesday 25 November and Thursday 26 November 2020

Challenges and Solutions for Keeping Electronics Cool

IMAPS-UK will hold an Online Conference on the afternoons of Wednesday 25 November and Thursday 26 November 2020 on the topic of Thermal Management, where you can learn about the latest developments in passive and active cooling, materials, measurement and modelling to address the challenges of enhancing thermal dissipation from advanced electronics systems.

This Online Conference will cover all aspects of designing, manufacturing and testing of high thermal performance electronics, where miniaturisation, costs and reliability are critical features that need to be optimised.

5 key reasons to attend:

  • End User Requirements – hear about the challenges facing transportation and industrial applications
  • Passive Cooling – overcoming thermal management issues through advanced materials and processes
  • Active Cooling – thermoelectric generators, additive manufacturing, embedded cooling
  • Measurement and Testing – ensuring long term reliability and fitness for purpose
  • Simulation – shortening the design and validation cycle
