OptoCooler HV14

Nextreme Thermal Solutions has released the OptoCooler HV14 high voltage and high heat pumping thermoelectric cooler that operate at low currents and are optimized for standard circuitry and power requirements.

The OptoCooler HV14 is the latest product in Nextreme's OptoCooler family of thermoelectric coolers designed specifically for the optoelectronics and telecommunications industries.

The OptoCooler HV14 can pump up to 1.5W of heat and operate at a maximum voltage of 2.7V and a peak current of around 1A, with a footprint of only 2.8mm x 2.8mm. The module can create a temperature differential of up to 51C between its hot and cold sides, making it suited for the cooling and temperature control of optoelectronic devices such as laser diodes for transmission modules and photodiodes for sensing.

At the core of the OptoCooler module is Nextreme's thermal copper pillar bump that acts as a solid-state heat pump to add thermal management functionality locally on the surface of a chip or other electrical component. By cooling at the source with the smallest devices on the market, customers are offered a unique approach to solving thermal design challenges.

The new HV Series also allows for easy integration into existing control systems with compatible voltage and current specifications.

The OptoCooler HV14 is RoHS compliant and is available for order now. Pricing is available upon request.
