Abstract

The anxiety of merging tiny materials and resin materials in the manufacturing process has become one of the serious issues because it may become cause of overheat such as lithium-ion batteries, flat panel displays, and so on. Therefore, a study on detecting method of the tiny metals is a significant issue. A combination of high-frequency induction heating and thermal detection method is one of the useful approaches. In this paper, MHz-frequency GaN inverter based IH system is built and tested to verify heating size limitation of the tiny metals. Furthermore, the validity of the proposed method to detect the tiny metals by proposed IH thermal technique is evaluated and discussed in detail.
