Thermal management challenges and solutions for avionics systems

Many industries have need for high reliability systems but in Avionics an unreliable system becomes a safety issue as well as exposure of the system supplier to significant warrantee, recall and reputation costs. And as the demand for more functionality and higher performing systems, squeezed into small form factors (such a predefined cockpit units) is the norm, the management of the heat produced by the circuitry becomes a significant challenge.
