Arctic Cooling Intros Two Modifications of Freezer CPU Cooler

Arctic Cooling AG, a well-known Swiss developer of cooling solutions, has recently introduced its newest CPU cooler, Freezer, in two modifications: i11 and A11. Both versions have got tower-like framework, featuring 108x90x130 mm dimensions. The Freezer i11 is compatible with Intel LGA 2011/1156/1155/1150 socket platforms, whereas its companion is intended for AMD Socket FM1, FM2, AM3, AM3+, AM2, and AM2+. To say more, this pair is able to cool down the ‘blaze’ of CPUs with 150 W TDP.



Arctic Freezer i11/A11 consists of an aluminum heatspreader with forty-five plates, three U-shape copper heatpipes, and one 92 mm fan. The heatpipes are thought to support direct contact technology that dramatically improves heat transfer process.


The implemented fan is developed on a fluid dynamic bearing and is equipped with a PWM controller. The latter assures that the blades could change their rotational speed within the ranges from 500 RPM to 2000 RPM. Herein, the maximal airflow …

The First Glimpse on NXP Signal Amplifier BGU8006

NXP Semiconductors company announces the release of a GPS signal amplifier BGU8006 destined primarily for the integration into mobile devices, tablets, navigators, photo- and video cameras. According to the words of the NXP representatives, their new model is the most bantam signal amplifier available in the market: BGU8006 dimensions equal to 0.65mm x 0.44mm x 0.2mm. Besides, this amplifier is characterized by the extremely low level of noise and the necessity to employ only a couple of external components to enable the device (decoupling capacitor and matching inductor).



The abundance of radio frequency signals serves the major impediment for the pure GPS signal reception. NXP BGU8006 has been developed with this thought in mind and is called to improve the reception of weak GPS signals by means of a dynamic rejection of strong signals released by the cellular and local wireless networks.


BGU8006 is based on QuBIC4Xi SiGe:C BiCMOS technology which is known to involve the …
