Nextreme and Lockheed cooperate on next-generation thermal management

July 28, 2009
Nextreme Thermal Solutions (Durham, NC), provider of microscale thermal and power management products for the electronics industry, and Lockheed Martin (Bethesda, MD) entered into a cooperation agreement to develop new products based on Nextreme's thin-film thermoelectric materials. Lockheed Martin will use Nextreme's thin-film thermoelectric products and thermal and power management design services in solutions it is developing for government and civil applications.

Nextreme Thermal Solutions (Durham, NC), provider of microscale thermal and power management products for the electronics industry (see "Thin-film thermoelectric technology makes optoelectronics 'cool'"), and Lockheed Martin (Bethesda, MD) entered into a cooperation agreement to develop new products based on Nextreme's thin-film thermoelectric materials. Lockheed Martin will use Nextreme's thin-film thermoelectric products and thermal and power management design services in solutions it is developing for government and civil applications. Lockheed Martin was recently in the news for its acquisition of Gyrocam Systems.

"Lockheed Martin is a global leader and engaging with them is a tremendous step forward for Nextreme," said Jesko von Windheim, CEO of Nextreme. "They represent leading-edge technology and offer an exceptional channel into the government sector, both of which can accelerate the development of next generation products."

Nextreme's team of engineers offers thermal modeling, design and engineering services to deliver fully optimized microscale thermal and power management solutions using standard and customized products.

Nextreme uses its breakthrough thermal bump technology to produce discrete and integrated cooling and power generation devices. Nextreme currently offers several thermoelectric coolers, such as the OptoCooler HV14 and UPF40, that are capable of cooling and heating in ranges from 0.4 W to 4 W, with plans to provide higher heat pumping in the near future.
