Free PCB Project—— Dual Heat Flux Project
School: University of Oviedo
The Article Writer: Jaime Gonzalez Verde
The objective of this project is to be able to measure the temperature of a non-accessible heat source, based on the Dual Heat Flux principle developed by Kei Ichiro Kitamura. The prototype will be based on a microcontroller, which will communicate with the heat sensors via I2C and will calculate the desired internal temperature after taking into account the heat insulation between each of the pairs of sensors. Afterward, the value will be displayed on the OLED display for the operator to acknowledge. The system will be connected to a 3,6V battery and will have two power buses, of 3,6V and 3V respectively. For achieving the 3V bus (needed for the sensors to work at their best accuracy) a DC-DC converter will be employed.
Share your experience with JLCPCB
Thanks to JLCPCB I have been able to choose the smallest components for obtaining a portable and compact device, without compromising soldering viability and offering a very professional final appearance. JCLPCB also provided a 0,6mm thin PCB which dissipated a very smaller amount of heat than the traditional ones, very relevant for my application.
Something you want to say to other students who may need free PCB:
I would highly recommend JLCPCB. The quality of PCBs is flawless, manufacturing and delivering time is completely reasonable, and overall if you are a student and want to manufacture your first designs, I can’t think of any better opportunity than JLCPCB’s Student Sponsorship.
