Thermoelectric devices – How they work

A thermoelectric device is made up of specialized semiconducting materials connected in a circuit that is sandwiched between two thermally conductive ceramic substrates. When the circuit is energized heat is moved electronically in the direction of the current creating a temperature difference between the two sides of the device.

Phononic – How we do things differently

We’ve taken on complex thermal, mechanical, and electrical challenges—and solved them. Phononic’s design approach allows for thermoelectric technology to be implemented in a rugged, interchangeable, and easily integrated package, minimizing manufacturing loss and reaching new levels of reliability and efficiency.


Icon Image More efficient, up to 30% less power

We have made significant improvements in the ability of our devices to deliver heat pumping with high efficiency—using up to 30% less power—high heat flux, and improved cooling. Standard thermoelectric coolers (TECs) can’t compare.

Icon Image Performance

Through rigorous thermal, mechanical and electrical engineering of our devices and Solid-State Heat Pumps, we have optimized thermal and electrical parasitics associated with integrating semiconductors into devices. As a result, our TECs and Solid-State Heat Pumps have the highest possible performance when it comes to primary heat transport.

Icon Image Application

Integrating devices into our Solid-State Heat Pumps makes it possible to pump tens, hundreds, or even thousands of watts, enabling the use of thermoelectric technology in a wide range of cooling and heating applications.
