Temperature of in-line array of electronic components simulated by rectangular blocks

May 1st, 2000

An earlier work by the authors (Molki et al., 1995) discussed the adiabatic heat transfer coefficient of rectangular blocks situated in an in-line array. In real circuit boards, heat is generated by a number of…read more
