In the development of electronic and microelectronic devices, transient thermal information is critical to validate whether a device or a specific part of the device is operating properly. However, a number of concerns related to thermal transport exist. In order to efficiently address these concerns, it is critical to fully understand the nature of thermal transport in materials at the microscale.
The inherent heat found in smaller electronic circuit boards and components can easily cause system failures and significant damage. This webinar compares infrared imaging with the more traditional temperature measurement devices while utilizing real-world infrared images and examples.
As electronic circuit boards and components get smaller and more powerful, inherent heating becomes a concern. Infrared camera technology is helping save electronic design companies money through improved test times and better product design.
This e-book addresses the inherent heating problems in electrical system designs. Whether in early rapid prototyping design, failure analysis and quality assurance, or troubleshooting on product returns, thermal measurement is a key tool for identifying problems and improving thermal management solutions.
Although infrared radiation (IR) is not detectable by the human eye, an IR camera can convert it to a visual image that depicts thermal variations across an object or scene. Thermography is accomplished with an IR camera calibrated to display temperature values across an object or scene, and allows for noncontact measurements of an object’s temperature.
