With shrinking form factors, tighter power budgets, and higher performance, thermal management can be a challenge in today’s designs. It might be time to bust out the thermal grease to help conduct away some of that excess heat. But, before you grab that tube, check out this episode of Chalk Talk where Amelia Dalton chats with Len Metzger of Panasonic about the details, drawbacks, and design considerations when using thermal grease - and its alternatives.
