As the world of electronics decreases in size and weight the issue of temperature management becomes more prevalent. Companies face a limited variety of options for managing temperature gradients within or around its systems, ranging from buying off-the-shelf options to designing a system with more area to achieve a desired temperature range. This complexity can lead to compromises that reduce quality and increase the size and weight of the product. When a printed circuit board (PCB) is exposed to a higher amount of heat (whether it be environmental or internally generated from components on the board) the circuit expands. With smaller wavelengths at higher frequencies, the miniature features become distorted during this expansion, causing loss of linearity, distortion and even frequency shifts, damaging the reliability and functionality of the device.
