An engineering and testing lab's thermal management design group gives its customers a way to model, design, develop and qualify cooling strategies for their products.

The lab at IQS LLC in Marlboro, Mass., can quickly and accurately diagnose and mitigate any potential thermal problem an existing product may have. The goal is to identify and solve thermal issues by the first prototype stage of product development and verify the solution by production. By providing a solution that will not require changes once the product reaches manufacturing, large engineering-change costs are avoided.

Examples of thermal projects include optimization and selection of air movers and heat sinks, PCB component layout direction and determination of critical device junction temperatures. For more information, go to
