Laird boosts expertise in electronics cooling and energy harvesting with Nextreme acquisition

EARTH CITY, Mo., 15 Feb. 2013. Executives of Laird Technologies Inc. in Earth City, Mo., are boosting their company's expertise in electronics cooling and electronics thermal management with their acquisition of Nextreme Thermal Solutions Inc. in Durham, N.C., officials announced this week.

Laird Technologies specializes in thermal management, EMI shielding, and wireless antenna technologies, and the Nextreme acquisition will advance Laird's leadership in its existing thermal management business, and enable the company to branch into applications such as energy harvesting, officials say.

Nextreme specializes in thin-film thermoelectric technologies, and focuses on precision cooling in an ultra-small form factor. The acquisition will give Laird market access to application such as sensors, solar power, and light-emitting diodes (LEDs), company officials say.

"Nextreme is the next generation in technology for thermoelectrics," says David Lockwood, chief executive of Laird Technologies. "It can fundamentally change the way we cool electronics at the most integrated levels while being produced in large volumes."

Nextreme has expertise in micro-scale form factors, high power-pumping capabilities, and high-volume semiconductor manufacturing. Laird is known for solutions that protect electronic devices from electromagnetic interference and heat, and that enable connectivity through wireless applications and antenna systems.
