The trend for smaller and more powerful electronics leads to increasingly complex thermal conductivity challenges for systems designers. Using thermal interface materials (TIMs), the heat from hot components can be transferred to a cold surface or cooling hardware by means of low thermal resistance and high thermal conductivity combinations.
A variety of technologies and constructions ensure the most efficient thermal conductivity solution is available, whatever your thermal conductivity needs.
