Gartner forecasts combined worldwide shipment of mobile devices to reach 2.6 billion units by 2017. Ever-increasing performance of handheld devices and smartphones requires increased power consumption resulting in greater heat generation. This is especially true when running video or game applications. These types of operations are both CPU and graphics intensive, involving much higher power dissipation than viewing a relatively static screen. The thermal design of the next generation handheld tablet device or smartphone will need to address a comfortable surface touch temperature while meeting aggressive industrial design requirements. KULR provides a superior solution to fit both of these needs.
