Dr. Kaveh Azar, President and CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc., will be presenting at the 2012 coolingZONE Business and Technology Summit, August 27-30 in Cambridge, MA. Additionally, Dr. Azar will teach the Pre-Summit Short Course “Thermal Measurement and Experimental Design in Electronic Systems” on August 27, 2012. Thermal management, more than ever before, has become the center of attention in a successful launch of a product. The challenge that we all face as product managers or engineers is to select, design or deploy a successful cooling solution suitable for the product at hand while meeting its market requirements. As the result, we often overlook what is available on the market and what has been developed to meet the cooling challenges of different electronics. The range of cooling options varies from natural convection in air to cryogenic cooling – or any other solution that lies in between. Dr. Azar’s presentation will look at the cooling technologies that have been developed across the electronics market sector, from consumer electronics to high capacity computing to military/avionics equipment. The use and reason behind deployment of such cooling technologies along with their salient points will be discussed. The presentation will close with the options to exercise when selecting a cooling system while highlighting the best path for meeting the market requirements of a given electronic system.
Dr. Azar will be presenting the Pre-Summit Short Course “Thermal Measurement and Experimental Design in Electronic Systems” on August 28, 2012 in Cambridge, MA. This course will provide participants with the best practice of thermal measurement in electronics applications by teaching the fundamentals for measuring temperature, velocity, and pressure and heat flux in electronics systems. The tutorial will cover a host of topics in thermal measurement and uncertainty analysis along with the assessing the role of bad data in product design. The course will also feature a live and hands-on demo of how to use sensors and measure temperature, velocity, pressure and heat flux sensors in wind tunnel testing of heat sinks and PCB’s.
Last year’s Summit was widely attended by international participants and taught by leaders in the electronics cooling industry. The 2012 Summit keynote speakers include Dr. Avram Bar-Cohen of DARPA, and Aavid Thermalloy’s CEO, Alan Wong. Industry leaders Dr. Alfonso Ortega and Dr. Mehdi Asheghi will co-chair the annual summit.

Dr. Kaveh Azar is the President and CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS), a leading edge thermal management company involved in developing liquid and air cooling solutions for the telecomm and computing market sectors. Under Dr. Azar’s leadership, ATS has expanded globally with offices in Europe and Asia, and has become the leading supplier of cooling solutions and thermal management consulting to the telecomm market sector. Prior to ATS, Dr. Azar was the founder and manager of Lucent Technologies thermal management center, responsible for developing the next generation of cooling systems. In addition, Dr. Azar has authored Lucent’s thermal roadmap and served as the corporate thermal consultant. While at Lucent, he developed a state-of-the- art thermal/fluids laboratory for simulation of components, boards and systems. Since 1985, Dr. Azar has been an active participant in electronics thermal community and has served as the organizer, general chair and the keynote speaker at the national and international conferences sponsored by ASME, IEEE and AIAA. He has also been an invitee to national bodies such as NSF, NIST and NEMI for organizing government and industry research goals in electronics cooling. Dr. Azar has been an adjunct professor at a number of universities in the USA, and lecturers worldwide on different facets of electronics cooling. He holds more than 31 national and international patents, has published more than 73 articles, 3 book chapters and a book entitled, “Thermal Measurements in Electronics Cooling” and has edited a 5 book series, “Qpedia – Electronics Thermal Management.” In addition, he served as the Editor-in-Chief of Electronics Cooling Magazine for eleven years, and is currently the publisher of Qpedia, a monthly publication dedicated to thermal management of electronic systems. Dr. Azar has received several recognitions within Bell Labs and other entities that include Bell Labs’ President Silver Award, Strathmore’s Who’s Who, The Uptime Institute for Visionary Leadership and IEEE SEMITHERM Significant Contributor Award in thermal management of electronics systems.
