Dive into the complex world of thermal interface materials (TIMs) in electronic system design in our latest podcast. Focusing on thicker gaps, we explore challenges with insulating air gaps in heat sinks. The episode delves into the liquid vs. pad debate, defining "thick" gaps and comparing thermal pads with liquid gap fillers. Further, we dissect the distinctions between two-part liquid and gel TIMs. Beyond this, our discussion emphasizes crucial considerations like resin chemistry and thermal conductivity, guiding optimal TIM selection for effective heat dissipation in electronic devices. Discover more insights by listening to the podcast or reading the accompanying article.
