Thermal Management for LED Applications
Thermal Management for LED Applications provides state-of-the-art information on recent developments in thermal management as it relates to LEDs and LED-based systems and their applications. Coverage begins with an overview of the basics of thermal management including thermal design for LEDs, thermal characterization and testing of LEDs, and issues related to failure mechanisms and reliability and performance in harsh environments. Advances and recent developments in thermal management round out the book with discussions on advances in TIMs (thermal interface materials) for LED applications, advances in forced convection cooling of LEDs, and advances in heat sinks for LED assemblies.
Presents a comprehensive overview of the basics of thermal management as it relates to LEDs and LED-based systemsDiscusses both design and thermal management considerations when manufacturing LEDs and LED-based systemsCovers reliability and performance of LEDs in harsh environmentsHas a hands-on applications approach that looks at the importance of thermal management of LEDs in the automotive and aerospace fields
