Ultra-Compact Coolers for Next-Generation Optical Transceivers
Fiber optic technology has essentially replaced copper wire in datacom and telecommunication industries. Emerging applications, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, require higher data transfer speeds and bandwidth across significant distances all at a lower cost.
Heat Exchangers for Today’s Immersion Cooling Systems
IT advancements and higher power and performance requirements have increased the amount of heat generated in data centers. To lower operating costs, immersion cooling utilizing heat exchangers has gained in popularity. Providing precise temperature control and bulk heat removal, this is also proved to be a more efficient cooling solution.

Thermoelectric Assemblies Optimize Thermal Performance in any Outdoor Environment
Laird Thermal Systems has introduced a series of thermoelectric assemblies (TEAs) designed for use in outdoor environments. The Outdoor Cooler Series are compact (cooling objects via convection) air-to-air TEAs said to provide a lower total cost of ownership by maintaining the appropriate temperature range using minimal energy due to its high coefficient of performance (COP).
Advanced Thermoelectric Cooling for Optoelectronics
Used to source, detect, and control light, optoelectronics are increasingly important in a wide range of automotive, telecom, and industrial applications. With high beam quality and low energy consumption, optoelectronics offer superior performance at a low cost. Due to the potentially high-temperature environments in which these optoelectronic components operate, active thermoelectric coolers are used for temperature stabilization to ensure maximum performance and long-life operation.
Within industrial processing, laser diodes are bundled together to form a high-power laser that can cut thru materials. Laser diodes are also used in light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology used, for example, to map the area surrounding an autonomous vehicle.
Active Cooling of Optical Transceivers
Tier 1 OEM’s in telecom infrastructure market are designing the next standard for telecommunications, 5G. It will provide faster data transmission speeds than current LTE (4G) systems, approaching broadband speeds achieved with landlines. The latency will be much lower, reducing the number of times packets need to be resent. This will be great for mobile users in densely populated areas trying to stream movies, music or live TV on their smart devices.
