I have a ceramic heat exchange chip(10m x 10m). I know you are suppose to lay this on the chip, and lay a heatsink on top of that. What is the best medium for connecting the heat exchange to the ...
How do I determine the area of copper needed on a PCB to provide adequate heatsinking for a power SMD MOSFET?
I am planning to use the IRFR5305PBF Power MOSFET (http://www.irf.com/product-info/datasheets/data/irfr5305pbf.pdf) to switch on a load. I have determined that I need an external heatsink with Rthsa ...
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_grease All these compounds conduct heat far better than air, but far worse than metal. They are intended to fill gaps that would otherwise hold air, not ...
We need to drive a motor with around 40 Amps. The mosfet has an Rdson of about 7 mohms at 90 degrees Celsius. That is a whopping 11.2Watts of heat generated on the poor mosfet. We are very space ...
I've designed a simple PWM RGB LED slow fader to be used as a garden lighting effect. My circuit works great, but I under-estimated the amount of heat that is generated by the 7805 linear regulator. ...
I've noticed that when soldering small PCBs can get very hot. Since I haven't yet been able to find a good vise in which to hold PCBs, I mostly hold them in my hand and after several minutes of ...
