Five silicon heat sink prototypes were heat-tested and monitored by stepping up the voltage across a small attached resistor. Since I had only a first semester physics course under my belt, electromagnetism was new to me. This experiment gave me firsthand the difference between alternating and direct current, and what an eye opener it was! I wrote a graphical presentation with my Adobe Photoshop skills, which EOTRON used when consulting with potential customers.
