    1. Thermal Management – Smart-e-Webinar
      2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

      This will discuss various TIMs (Thermal Interface Materials) including thermal greases, Phase Change Materials (PCMs), graphite foils and Solder-TIMs, that are used between the power source and the heat sink.

      Maintaining the right junction temperature (JT) of the power die is critical to achieve the operational requirements over the lifetime of the device. If the integrity of the TIM changes during service, JT of the device could be inaccurately estimated. This would lead to overestimating JT and unnecessarily limiting power or in a worse case, early mean time to failure (MTTF) of the power device.

      The variables that impact heat transfer from the power die to the heat sink for the different TIMs include – bulk thermal conductivity, thermal resistance, material thickness, surface irregularities and the ability of the mating surfaces to always make contact with the TIM effect of temperature and cycling on bulk material properties over time

    1. Design and Manufacture of High Voltage – Smart-e-Webinar
      2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

      Design and Manufacture of High Voltage

       Tuesday, 14th July 2015, 14.30 – 16.00 UK Time

      With footprint becoming an ever increasing issue, demands on High Voltage electronics design and manufacture are becoming ever more difficult to manage. Decreasing size demands and HV requirements for creepage clearances and separation are at odds with each other, meaning that modern methods need to be refined in order to maintain performance and push the boundaries of current technical requirements.

      This webinar will explore the current technical barriers faced in High Voltage electronics design and manufacturing process and set a current state of thinking.
      SMART Group price is £65 plus VAT for members and £85.00 plus vat for non members
