A Designer’s Guide to Smart Battery Applications

Michele Windsor, Direct Sales and Marketing Manager

When integrating a rechargeable battery into a professional application, especially into a mission critical medical or military device, the first things that come to mind are reliability and safety.  However, there are many other factors designers need to consider throughout the various stages of custom battery design. Here, Michele Windsor, direct sales and marketing manager at professional battery manufacturer Accutronics, guides design engineers through the process of embedding batteries in medical, military or automation applications.

Smart Electronic Adhesives for Microelectronics – Enabled by Low Viscosity Nanocomposite Materials

Dr. Andreas Funck, Head of AT Electronics, Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH
Torsten Lubenow, AT Electronics, Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH

Epoxy resins commonly used for the encapsulation of electronic materials are often filled with various inorganic materials to reduce the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), improve thermal conductivity and feature other  mechanical properties. The increase in viscosity that accompanies the increase in filler loading, limits the amount of filler that can be added to a liquid encapsulation system. As a result, highly filled systems are difficult to use in applications that require better flow characteristics such as, flip chip under-fills, transfer molding masses and encapsulates. Moreover, trends of miniaturization require encapsulation systems with much lower viscosity, but with more efficient thermal management. MORE
