Title: THERMOELECTRIC MODULE AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME
Abstract:
Thermoelectric modules and methods of making thermoelectric modules that include a plurality of row couples each comprising interconnected pairs of n-type and p-type thermoelectric material legs between a first bonding area and a second bonding area, a first connector bonded to each of the first bonding areas of the plurality of row couples, and a second connector bonded to each of the second bonding areas of the plurality of row couples, wherein the first and second connectors provide mechanical support for and electrical connection between the plurality of row couples. The first and second connectors may be connector members having a patterned conductive surface to define a circuit configuration for the module.
