Each component on a circuit board consumes power and, in turn, contributes to the overall operating temperature of an application. Designing an effective thermal management system to reduce unwanted heat is vital to performance. Dc fan technology has proven to be a competitive solution due to its minimal electromagnetic interference, power consumption and noise. However, selecting the right dc fan requires a systematic approach, which involves determining system requirements and understanding key considerations when designing a dc fan into an application.
