Cooling Electronics

One of the most critical challenges to using modern, state-of-the-art electronics is the amount of heat that these systems generate. As new designs compact electronic equipment, the space available for heat to move and escape diminishes. As a result, high temperatures are generated and trapped by electronics, which can diminish the equipment’s life span, accelerate the chances of component malfunction, and decrease its reliability. To combat the drawbacks of excess heat, effective solutions for cooling electronics with advanced cooling techniques must be used.

NMB has extensive experience in the manufacturing and development of optimal cooling solutions such as cooling fans, blowers and motorized impellers. These systems play a critical part in thermal management by removing damaging heat from all types of electronic equipment. NMB is the chosen partner for manufacturers and designers who look for cooling products that have increased functionality, greater reliability, and smoother operations. Drawing from years of experience in the manufacturing of miniature ball bearings, which is one of the most critical components in fans, NMB cooling products surpass standard products and use the most advanced thermal engineering resources available. Additionally, NMB’s products and components can be customized to design application-specific products. NMB’s solutions cool electronic components in computers, motor controls, household appliances like television sets and stereos, power supplies, medical applications, industrial machinery, and much more.

Cooling Mechanisms Used in Electronics

Two of the most basic types of cooling mechanisms used in electronics are natural convection and forced convection.

Natural Convection

Natural convection is a passive process, in that systems using this method do not rely on a specified air velocity for dissipating heat. Passive heat sinks used in some electronics are typically manufactured from aluminum, cast alloys, or copper sheets.

Forced Convection

Forced convection, on the other hand, requires a forced air velocity for dissipating heat. It uses fans to increase thermal efficiency. Cooling fans optimize airflow by either directing a cross flow of air across the fins or by directing air towards the base of the heat sink.

Fans and Heat Sinks

There are different types of cooling fans meant for different types of electronics. Choosing the right type of fan is important as it makes a huge difference in cooling electronics and systems. You can choose fans based on your system’s requirements. Once you’ve determined the specification necessary, you can select the best fan according to the particular power specification of a design, the required life span, acoustics, or reliability. Choosing the wrong fans for your electronics can result either in underutilizing the full capacity of the fan or not gaining enough cooling capability.

Similarly, choosing the right heat sink is fundamental to achieving the optimal temperature for your electronic equipment. To select the right heat sink, check the performance of your electronic system.
