Advanced Thermal Management for LEDs – Practical Solutions When Heat Sinks Aren’t Good Enough


70-80% of the power for LEDs turns into waste heat and higher temperatures degrades their color rendering and operating life. As LED applications require more power, thermal management solutions are becoming increasingly important. Advanced passive thermal technologies including heat pipes and vapor chambers, are finding increasing applications for LEDs because they provide significantly improved heat dissipation and weight and space savings vs. conventional heat sinks. The Webinar will introduce these passive technologies and demonstrate how and when they can be best implemented for today’s challenging LED applications.
