Locate component hot-spots easy but with a cost – [via]
Advanced Thermal Solutions has introduced the TLC-100 Kit which features spray-on thermochromic liquid crystals that change color at different temperatures to reveal heat issues on chips and other electronic components.
Applying the liquid crystals enables engineers to visually find hotspots and temperature fields.
TLC-100 liquid crystals are designed for heat transfer studies and mapping heat fields on electronic components or boards. The crystals change color at a specified temperature starting at red, changing to green then blue. For electronics cooling applications, this provides the user accurate information about the location of hot spots on a device, their temperature and temperature gradient.
