It’s something every user of smart phones, tablets and even laptops has experienced: heat emanating from your indispensable electronic device. As the device works to perform all of the functions you demand, the temperature rises. Not only does the heat generation put stress on the internal device components, it can also be uncomfortable for the user. What’s more, this problem has only gotten worse as handhelds have become smaller and thinner while, at the same time, increasing functionality. Temperature concerns not only cause user discomfort; they also limit advancing semiconductor designs as many next-generation chips are simply too hot for current products.
