New High-Temperature Thermoelectric Coolers from Laird Thermal Systems Cool Optical Sensors in Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS)


Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) use a variety of imaging sensors, cameras and lasers to enhance vehicle safety and create better driving conditions. Most of these optical devices, including CMOS sensors and laser diodes, are heat sensitive and rely on high-resolution images for proper operation. Image quality can quickly deteriorate as the device temperatures rise above 60°C.





Cooling Solutions for Autonomous Systems


Advances in autonomous technologies, such as smart headlights, autonomous systems for collision avoidance, and infotainment systems, require enhanced thermal protection of critical electronics to ensure optimized performance. These emerging intelligent autonomous systems are increasingly complex while decreasing in size and weight. Packing more functionality into smaller footprints has increased the heat flux density and thermal challenges in autonomous systems.





Point of Care Testing

Point of care testing allows medical staff to perform real-time testing in the doctor’s office or at home. This contrasts with traditional medical laboratory testing that needs to be shipped out to a central testing center and take days to get results. Bringing testing and diagnosing closer to the patient is all an effort to improve healthcare. 

Temperature stability within the point of care testing device is the key to achieve reliable results. Because conductivity varies when blood temperature changes, blood sample’s temperature must be accurately controlled.

Infrared Range Sensors

Infrared Range (IR) sensors are used in a variety of applications, including temperature sensing, video surveillance and motion detection. The video surveillance market utilizes infrared sensing technology for motion-based detection to improve facility security at night. Thermal cameras utilizing IR technology help airport staff quickly screen passengers to detect fever. Most recently, infrared range sensors are used to detect people’s body temperatures as a security and safety measure in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic. 

ETX14-12-F1-6262-TA-RT-W6

The ETX14-12-F1-6262-TA-RT-W6 high temperature, high-performance thermoelectric cooler uses Laird's enhanced thermoelectric module construction preventing performance degrading copper diffusion, which is common in standard grade thermoelectric coolers operating in high temperature environments exceeding 80 °C. It has a maximum Qc of 138 Watts when ΔT = 0 and a maximum ΔT of 83.2 °C at Qc = 0.
