Download File 16. Thermal Management Handbook

Thermal management in electronic systems is done for one or more of the three purposes: 1) Control, 2) Calibration, and 3) Protection. This handbook provides an introduction to thermal management devices and illustrates some of the ways in which they may be used. As you might expect, thermal management begins with the measurement of temperature and progresses from there. 71 pages.
