Thermal Management

Future Electronics is a leader in Thermal Management, which is a crucial aspect of electronic design. Heat is generated by electronic devices and circuitry, so it must be dissipated to improve reliability and prevent failure. Techniques for heat dissipation can include heatsinks and fans, which can be used for air cooling. Future Electronics offers both solutions from leaders in the marketplace.


Future Electronics offers a wide range of Fans, both axial (propeller) and radial (blower/centrifugal) fans from such supplier as ADDA, Delta, Etri, Nidec, Nuventix, Orion and Sunon.

Fans are powered either by shaded pole AC motors, or brushed/brushless DC motors. AC-powered fans usually use the main voltage, while DC-powered fans typically use low voltage. The most common voltage for DC-powered fans are 5 V, 12 V or 24 V. Another benefit of the brushless DC motors (used in computer equipment) is that it produces less electromagnetic interference than other options.

Usually you will find fans used in conjunction with a heatsink to increase airflow. This is known as a forced air system.


Future Electronics offers a wide range of Heatsinks from such suppliers as Aavid Thermalloy, Crydom, CTS, Gardtec, Nuventix, TE Connectivity, Vicor and Wakefield.

A heat sink (or heatsink) is an object that absorbs and dissipates heat. Heatsinks usually consist of a metal structure with one or more flat surfaces to ensure good thermal contact with the components to be cooled, and an array of protrusions called “fins” (that look like a hair comb) to increase the surface contact with the air, and thus the rate of heat dissipation.

Heat sinks are used in a wide range of applications including refrigeration, heat engines, handheld electronic devices, CPUs and graphic processors.

Thermal Accessories

We also offer thermal compounds, such as paste or pad interface type to help in heat transfer to the heatsink.
