Laird Technologies Releases New eTEG Series Thin Film Thermoelectric Module Product Line
Press release date: November 27, 2012
St. Louis, Missouri, USA – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the release of its new eTEG Series Thin Film Energy Harvesting product line.
The eTEG Series are thermoelectric power generators that harvest waste heat and convert it in to usable output DC power. Due to their micro scale size and higher output power density, these devices are especially suitable for use in wireless sensors, LED lighting and battery charging applications. There are three standard eTEG modules available:
PG09,14,F0,0102,GG 33 mW
PG24,48,F2,0202,GG 90 mW
PG37,72,F2,0203,GG 130 mW
“The eTEG Series are miniature energy harvesting devices that can be embedded into many types of applications requiring low output power.” said Andrew Dereka, Laird Technologies Product Manager. “Because of their sold state reliability and no maintenance requirements, they are suitable to replace energy storage devices or provide power in remote places where access to a power line does not exist. This reliability means maintenance technicians do not have to replace batteries on remotely installed wireless sensors that monitor temperature, flow rate or composition of gases and liquids.”
The Thin Film Energy Harvesters are assembled with thin film semiconductor material, thermally conductive aluminum nitride ceramics and gold plated wire bondable pads. The three models have output voltages from 0.6 to 2.5 volts in an open circuit at maximum temperature differentials.
As an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective Thermal Management Solutions, Laird Technologies provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional thermal performance and customer satisfaction for applications in the medical, analytical, telecom, industrial, and consumer markets.
