Model-Based Thermal Design for Smaller, Efficient Electronic Devices

With higher performance demands than ever, various electronic devices, such as mobile phones, cameras, and ECUs mounted on automobiles, are becoming more integrated with sophisticated electronics. At the same time, electronic devices are required to be further miniaturized and have to be densified, which makes the heat problem in electronic devices more serious.

System-level modeling (or 1D simulation) software such as MapleSim can provide a thermal system with the necessary degree of detail, and is suitable for use at the initial stages of design, where CAD data may be unavailable. This technique is compatible with the Thermal Network Method (TNM), which can be executed after modeling to understand the thermal behavior of an electronic device. This whitepaper outlines the TNM and demonstrates the advantages of using a 1D CAE tool for this method.

Liverpool kind shirts kwaliteit hebben zoals

Ben Davies maakt zich geen zorgen over het gebrek aan overdrachtsactiviteit van Tottenham, omdat wervingsexcursies geen garantie bieden voor succes. Sporen moeten deze zomer nog een speler tekenen en hebben te weinig tijd om dat te doen, waarbij het overdrachtsvenster binnen 10 dagen sluit op 9 augustus. De Noord-Londenaren verlieten het op dezelfde manier eind vorig jaar en voegden vijf nieuwe gezichten toe aan hun ploeg, waaronder clubrecord Davinson Sanchez. Maar zelfs als Tottenham niet zoveel kan versterken als gepland, heeft Davies vertrouwen in de bestaande groep, die vorig seizoen als derde eindigde in de Premier League. "Het maakt ons geen zorgen," zei hij. "We hebben hier een goed team en zelfs tijdens deze voorseizoen-tour [in de VS] hebben de jongens tot nu toe goede prestaties geleverd en een goede ploeg ingezet. "We zien dat alle teams om ons heen toevoegen, maar dat is voetbal, daar maken we ons geen zorgen over." Alles waarover we ons zorgen moeten maken, is wat achter gesloten deuren voor ons gebeurt. "Kunnen we concurreren met Manchester City en de topclubs? Ik denk dat we vorig jaar hebben laten zien dat we dat konden. Het team is momenteel Juventus shirts RONALDO hetzelfde, maar we hebben hier veel kwaliteit. "Natuurlijk zullen de teams om ons heen gaan versterken, maar nieuwe gezichten hoeven niet noodzakelijkerwijs te betekenen dat teams beter zullen worden. "We concurreeren hier of daaromtrent de laatste paar jaar en alles wat we kunnen doen is een stap verder gaan. "De kwaliteit van de teams in de competitie wordt steeds beter en dat betekent dat we onze game moeten blijven opvoeren om dit jaar op de been te blijven." Tottenham bracht vorig seizoen door met Wembley als hun thuisbasis, en ze zullen nu moeten wennen aan een ander stadion terwijl ze zich voorbereiden om te beginnen met spelen in hun gloednieuwe stadion in Haringey in september. Spurs hadden een jaar geleden een stotterende start in de nationale arena en verzamelden slechts twee punten van hun eerste drie competitiewedstrijden daar, en de onbekendheid Barcelona kind shirts van hun nieuwe omgeving zou deze term opnieuw kunnen benadelen. Maar Davies voelt de ervaring van het team om zich aan te passen aan Wembley, en het feit dat de club en supporters terug zullen zijn op hun eigen grondgebied, zal het bezinkingsproces versnellen. "Vorig jaar hebben we het heel goed gedaan om het hele jaar op Wembley te spelen," zei hij. "Natuurlijk kun je niet echt klagen over het echte stadion en wat het is, maar je bent nog steeds niet in je stadion en het voelt een beetje los van wat je normaal hebt met al je thuisfans daar elke week. "Met het nieuwe stadion, hopelijk kunnen we ons daar snel vestigen en zullen we ons [sneller] voelen naar huis als het seizoen vordert. "We hebben onszelf nog niet vertrouwd kunnen maken met de plek, maar op ons trainingsveld doen ze er alles aan om het zo realistisch mogelijk te maken. We zullen trainen op plaatsen van dezelfde grootte en het zal dezelfde Liverpool kind shirts kwaliteit hebben zoals het zou in het stadion. "Niets zal ons echt voorbereiden op waar we naartoe gaan, maar ik ben er zeker van dat wanneer er ongeveer 58.000 Spurs-fans zijn, het snel genoeg thuis zal voelen." Davies bracht zijn eerste twee-en-een-halfseizoenen door bij Spurs als de tweede-keus-linksback, ter vervanging van Danny Rose. Maar met zijn teamgenoot en rivaal die de laatste 18 maanden wegens blessures grotendeels zijn vermist, is de Welshman in belang toegenomen en merkbare verbeteringen aangebracht, met name aanvallend. "De manier waarop volledige back-ups nu gaan, je moet zo creatief mogelijk zijn als defensief te zijn," zei Davies, sprekend na het voetballen met pleegkinderen uit het First Star-programma tijdens Spurs 'tour door de VS. "Ik zal altijd zeggen dat een full-back er PSG shirts MBAPPE is om eerst en vooral deel uit te maken van de verdediging, maar als je aan de andere kant kan inbinden met de vreemde hier en daar, is het zeker een waardevolle troef om te hebben."

3D Printing for End-Use Production

Yet these parts are often little more than conceptual show-and-tell models, not durable enough for long-term use, and in some cases prone to degradation by sunlight. 

The winds of manufacturing are beginning to shift, however, and industrial-grade 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is now encroaching on machining, injection molding, and other conventional manufacturing processes. This white paper explores the new and existing technology leaders in this area, and assesses the capabilities of production for each major 3D printing process. 

In this white paper you will learn:  Why 3D printing should be immediately adopted for production. What 3D printing technologies are available and the individual strengths that each technology brings to 3D printing. What the future holds for additive manufacturing and how near that future is to becoming reality.
