70-80% of the power for LEDs turns
into waste heat and higher temperatures degrades their color
rendering and operating life. As LED applications require more
power, thermal management solutions are becoming increasingly
important. Advanced passive thermal technologies including heat
pipes and vapor chambers, are finding increasing applications for
LEDs because they provide significantly improved heat dissipation
and weight and space savings vs. conventional heat sinks. The
Webinar will introduce these passive technologies and demonstrate
how and when they can be best implemented for today’s challenging
