Thermal Analysis in the Electronics Industry

On Demand Webinar
Electronic engineering deals with electrical circuits that involve components such as transistors, diodes, wires and integrated circuits which are usually mounted on printed circuit boards (PCB boards). The application area and lifetime of these components depend strongly on their thermal and mechanical properties. Thermal analysis is key in the design and production of PCB boards of electronic components.

In this Webinar, we will show how thermal analysis is applied to investigate materials for the electronics industry. We will present some typical examples of samples measured by DSC, TGA, TMA, or DMA.

Thermal analysis is essential in the electronics industry as the characterization and optimization of the electronic components largely depends on it. The target of such an optimization is to minimize failures and defects. It aims to prolong the service lifetime under ever harsher conditions.

By using a few milligrams of electronic component, the characterization of important parameters such as specific heat, the thermal expansion coefficient, the glass transition temperature, and the crystallization and melting behavior can be determined.

In this web-based Seminar (Webinar), we will present the main techniques of thermal analysis and present some typical applications.

The webinar covers the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Properties of electronic components
  • Typical questions
  • Thermal analysis
  • Instrumentation and applications
    - Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
    - Thermogravimetry (TGA)
    - Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
    - Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
  • Summary
