Electronic devices continue to become faster, smaller, and more powerful every day, enabling technological advancements across all industries. The Internet of Things, powered by embedded electronics and its complex infrastructure, has become a way of life. However, one of the main barriers to design and development of more compact, higher performing devices is thermal management. The heat produced by these devices is currently the key limiting factor as to how small and how powerful we can make electronic products.
