Video grabbers have efficient thermal management with chip cooler HFB44B12A
A video grabber is a device that captures digital video streams and sends them to a host system for further processing and storage. With the video grabber proFRAME our customer Solectrix offers a high-performance and modular system that has been in use successfully for many years in various automotive data loggers and HIL test systems for validating functions for autonomous driving. An efficient thermal management is vital for the reliability and service life of the system. In this respect SEPA EUROPE’s HFB44B12A chip cooler has without doubt proven its worth.
The HFB44B12A chip cooler is the result of intensive development work. In view of the increasing use of video grabbers, it was necessary to develop not only a reliable but also a powerful thermal management especially for this purpose. The fan/heat sink unit of SEPA EUROPE proved to be the ideal solution. With its compact dimensions (44x44x6 mm) and the light weight (7 g) it can be accurately positioned to achieve effective cooling. Thanks to innovative techniques, the fan noises can be reduced to an absolute minimum.
The fan is equipped with ball bearings and has a lifespan of 350000 hours (MTBF) at 40°C. It can be tailored to the customers’ needs. Parameters, e.g. size, tacho output, PWM input, operating voltage or pre-assembled connectors can be customized.
