Nextreme Ships New Optocooler HV14 High Voltage, Low Current Thermoelectric Module

Nextreme Thermal Solutions, the leader in microscale thermal and power management products for the electronics industry, today announced the first customer shipment of the new OptoCooler HV14 thermoelectric cooler, the first module in a new class of high voltage and high heat pumping thermoelectric coolers 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 operates at a maximum voltage of 2.7V and a peak current of around 1A, with a footprint of only 2.8 mm2. The module can create a temperature differential (ΔT) of up to 51°C between its hot and cold sides, making it ideally 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 breakthrough 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 allows for easy integration into existing control systems with compatible voltage and current specifications.
Nextreme will be demonstrating their cooling and thermal management product family, including the HV14 module, at the Photonics West conference, January 27-29, 2009 in booth #6198A at the San Jose Convention Center, South Hall 1.
The OptoCooler HV14 is RoHS compliant and is available for order now. Pricing is available upon request.
