So, my Technical Support Team and I were at Electronica in Munich last week, speaking directly with customers, answering questions and finding solutions to their problems. On the Thermal Management stand (my base for the week) there are some common themes running through the questions that we are receiving. So I thought I would share them via our  knowledge centre for everyone’s reference:

“What thickness should I apply my thermal interface material?”

Whether it’s a thermal management paste, gap pad or…
