As a educational service to the Silicon Valley thermal community, the Thermal Design Center has created a series of technical presentations that will be offered on a routine basis during the course of the year.

The format of these presentations is informal and consists of a 6:00 to 6:30PM technical networking opportunity with non-alcoholic beverages and food snacks, 6:30 to 7:15PM technical presentation, and 7:15 to 7:30PM for Q&A. The presentations are held at the Thermal Design Center (see Location for address and maps) on the second Tuesday of month for 10 months of the year. Presentation handouts will be available in both hardcopy and electronic form.

There is no charge for attendance but you have to register at least 24 hours in advance to attend.

The advance registration is necessary to insure that there are enough handouts, seating, beverages and food.

Please review the list below to determine which presentations are of interest to you. Click on the Presentation Title to access a short description. Click on the Presenter to read a short bio.
