Smartphone Thermal Design Case Study
In late 2009, Palm released one of its smallest smartphones at the time called Pixi. Due to its small size the Pixi had several thermal problems. Palm turned to Aavid, Thermal Division of Boyd Corporation, for an overall thermal evaluation and improve the thermal performance of the phone for the next generation release. Aavid was able to provide a thermal solution to improve the Pixi performance under different configurations.
