Heat can be a problem in a system and engineers need to find a solution to control the temperature. Why? The answer could be summed up in one word: reliability. Many components are made with silicon and overheating is destructive for this material. The optimum temperature is defined by the suppliers. An increase of 20 ° C reduces the life of the component by 50%. As a result, the service life of the device, which affects reliability, raises warranty issues and ultimately reduces the benefits to the manufacturer. Having a fault on a device is not a good thing for anyone and that is why the temperature needs to be controlled.
