Advancements in Thermal Management 2011 Showcases the Future of Thermal Mitigation Technologies

Advancements in Thermal Management 2011 is a technical symposium for design engineers and product developers looking to push the capabilities of their electronics designs. Being held on Sept. 20-21, 2011 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN, this event will feature presentations on the latest advancements in thermal management and thermal technology for consumer electronics, electronics packaging , temperature sensing and control, thermal materials, systems design and management for optimizing thermal properties.

According to a study from BCC Research, the value of the global market for thermal management technologies is an estimated to reach $10.2 billion in 2015, at a growth rate of 6.4 percent. In recent years, there has been tremendous progress technologically, and in terms of demand, in electronic devices and systems. This technological progress has come on two main fronts, increased functionality on a single device unit and miniaturization of each unit. Both of these developments have increased the need for thermal management technology.
