Year 2017 is already off to a good start… a warm welcome to all our readers from Electronics Cooling!
As electronics continue to pervade all walks of our lives, thermal management remains front and center as one of the important enablers in product realization. At the risk of repeating myself, I must say that there has never been a better time than the present to be an electronics thermal management engineer/designer! To that end, Electronics Cooling is hard at work bringing you relevant articles and news updates that span the entire ecosystem of electronics thermal management.
As you witnessed over the last few months, we have implemented many changes and improvements to our web portal. Our coverage of electronics thermal management technologies now spans across multiple disciplines –from physical sciences to biosciences and medical. Our website is now much easier to navigate, the contents are well-categorized for easier browsing and we allow moderated user comments. We encourage you to make it interactive, feel free to comment under blog articles. Better yet, if you have any topics or suggestions for blogs, feel free to contribute! We are looking for blogs with a minimum of 600 words and as many figures / images as needed. You can contact the Technical Editor at: MP@electronics-cooling.com.
In addition to our weekly newsletter email updates and blogs, we are planning to release several Electronics Cooling Mini Guides with applicable dates and themes:
February – Consumer Electronics & IoT Mini Guide
April – Automotive & Power Electronics Mini Guide
June – Flexible, Printed & Wearable Electronics Mini Guide
August – Datacenter, Enterprise & Edge Computing Mini Guide
October – Military, Aerospace & Industrial Mini Guide
Our printed version of the Electronics Cooling Magazine is undergoing changes as well. In 2017, there will be three editions with the following focus areas and release dates:
March – Consumer Electronics focus & SemiTherm special coverage
June – Automotive Focus, Buyers Guide special coverage
September – Military, Aerospace & Industrial Focus & Thermal Live! Pre-conference Special Coverage
For the print edition, we are also planning to add more contributing editors on board to bring a plurality of expertise, opinions and view points.
