Murata Americas announced the launch of a microblower that uses a piezoelectric diaphragm, which vibrates up and down when a sine wave voltage is applied. The vibrations force air into the microblower and out through a nozzle on the top of the device. Used as an air pump and capable of creating a high air pressure flow, the pump is ideally suited to shorten the duration of high-pressure airflow applications such as an air blower for fuel cells and spot cooling for IC’s and electronic circuitry.
Electronics Cooling magazine has been providing a technical data column since 1997 with the intent of providing you, the readers, with pertinent material properties for use in thermal analyses. We have largely covered the most common materials and their associated thermal properties used in electronics packaging.
