Course Outline
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
• use modern techniques of cooling of electronic equipment applying the knowledge gained at the seminar
• assess the needs for cooling of your particular electronic device
• select the most adequate method of cooling for the geometry and configuration of your device.
• apply modern trends and techniques to meet today’s high demands for electronic equipment cooling
• make your company products more profitable by increasing their reliability achieved through providing the best answers to the design questions

Description Today's designers of electronic equipment tend to make devices smaller in size but in the same time with more electric power installed. If the heat generated in these devices is not dissipated adequately, the device junction temperature will exceed the maximum safe working temperature. Besides damage, the excess heat can cause stresses in the device as well as increase in signal noise.
This course will survey the main methods and techniques of cooling the electronic devices that are applied these days for electronic equipment. It will also focus on the selection of adequate method of cooling to be applied for the given geometrical configuration and operating parameters. The course will cover practical issues related to cooling effectiveness and provide guidelines for cost-benefit analysis of particular cooling system.

Objective To provide a comprehensive understanding of fundamentals and techniques used for cooling of electronic equipment.
Who Should Attend Practicing engineers, consultants, technicians and technologists, sales managers and customer service personnel involved in all aspects of design, production, testing and packaging of electronic products. They may be from aviation, spacecraft, communications systems, marine, telecommunication, computer, automotive and laboratory instruments industries. It will also be useful for professionals involved in everyday operation and maintenance of electronic systems.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
