ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the carbon-based heart-spreading product, SpreaderShield, produced by Cleveland, Ohio-based GrafTech International Ltd. and discusses how it can make a difference in actual designs. SpreaderShield is a natural graphite solution that distributes heat evenly in two dimensions, eliminating those killer hot spots. In addition to laptops, the technology works well in handsets, If you've ever had your ear burned from talking too long on a cell phone, you'll really appreciate SpreaderShield. In many cases, SpreaderShield can eliminate the need for other thermal management solutions such as fans, heat sinks, and heat pipes. In addition to being able to spread the heat out better than traditional aluminum and copper spreaders, the carbon shield is many times lighter. Other applications that make sense for SpreaderShield include flat-panel displays, portable projectors, digital video cameras, PDAs and MP3 players. However, it is a little more expensive than current technologies.
