The TLC-100 Kit from Advanced Thermal Solutions (Norwood, MA) features spray-on thermochromic liquid crystals which change color at different temperatures to reveal heat issues on chips and other electronic components. By applying these liquid crystals, engineers can visually find hotspots and temperature fields. Other features include:

  • Availability in a variety of temperature ranges from 12° to 120°C.
  • A particular bandwidth for each, from 1° to 20°C.
  • The capability to show thermal patterns on both a chip and the surrounding hardware.
