Design Tips for Using Thermal Pads and Metal Enclosures in Power Supplies for EVs
Designers of automotive subsystems, like traction inverters, face the constant challenge of high ambient temperatures. Is it worth the price to go with a thermal pad with very high conductivity? Why is it important to consider enclosure designs early in the process? Director of Automotive Business Development Peter Vaughan explains.
