A heat sink is a heat exchanger that transfers the heat from a device (electronic or mechanical) into air or a liquid coolant. It is usually used to cool electronics. Read more!
Seebeck Effect is a phenomenon in which a temperature difference between two dissimilar electrical conductors or semiconductors produces a voltage difference between the two substances. Read more!
A semiconductor is a material that has an electrical conductivity value that falls between that of a conductor and that of an insulator. Read more about applications!
Thermal Design is a division of engineering that uses thermodynamics to design technology and products. Learn more about how Phononic uses thermal design!
Temperature monitoring is the assurance of a consistent temperature by being processed through continual tracking and oversight. Automated data logging is the primary way to monitor temperature.
Heat load calculation is the process of determining heat load for a certain space or quantity of matter. Heat load is the amount of heat energy that needs to be added to maintain a desired temperature
QSFP is a compact, hot-pluggable optical module transceiver. TECs are used to cool the lasers inside transceivers. Learn more about transceivers and TECs.
A fiber optic transceiver is a device that sends and receives data by using fiber optic technology. Read more about transceiver cooling, TOSAs and more.
A TEC is a semiconductor or solid-state device that generates heating and cooling using the Peltier effect. Learn more about applications of TECs!
The Peltier effect is described as when an electrical current flows through a circuit where there are two different types of semiconductors and the result is a heating or cooling effect.
A thermoelectric cooler (TEC) is used to transport heat away from an object in order to maintain an ideal temperature. This is achieved through the Peltier effect.
Thermoelectric coolers (TECs) are powered by the Peltier effect. TECs are used for telecom & data applications. Learn more about TECs & Peltier devices!
A heat pump transfers heat in the opposite way of normal heat transfer, which would naturally move energy from a warm space to a cooler one.
A Peltier Cooler is a device that uses the emission or absorption of heat under an electrical bias at a junction between two conductors to heat or cool.
