Thermal Management: Heat Pipes, HiKTM Plates, and Vapor Chambers – Selection and Modeling

Heat pipes, high conductivity (HiK™) plates, and vapor chambers are two phase technologies that are often considered for electronics cooling.  All three devices rely on the very high evaporation and condensation coefficients of two phase fluids to reduce the ΔT between the source and the sink for a given power.  When properly engineered for power and mission duration, all of these devices provide passive, reliable cooling.

Smart Enclosures using RFID for Inventory Management

The NASA Johnson Space Center has developed a method for tracking collections of items in a smart container using radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags with a high level of read accuracy. Automating the tracking of a collection of items (particularly small items) represents a major industrial hurdle due to both tag size and cost. This technology promises to successfully address these hurdles. The smart enclosure innovation can track individual items in the smart containers or receptacles regardless of item placement. The NASA-developed patent-pending technology is available for licensing.

Build and Deploy Simulation Apps for Heat Transfer Analysis

Heat transfer, including multiphysics phenomena such as Joule heating and thermal expansion, is fundamental to the design of reliable products and systems. Through modeling and simulation, gain a better understanding of how temperature changes impact the performance of a device or process. With simulation apps based on your models, colleagues and customers can also perform heat transfer analysis through the use of highly specialized user interfaces.

Active Safety Solutions for Next Generation Automobiles

As automotive technology advances, so do the number and complexity of electronically controlled “safety critical” functions inside of a car. These functions include: front lighting, ADAS, viewing, electronic power steering, and rear lighting to name a few. The challenge and risk that all designers face is that of a critical failure occurring and safety critical functions not working as intended.
