How to Compare the Thermal Performance of Different Heat Sinks
With so many heat sinks and so many application variables, choosing the proper heat sink is one of te board designer’s greatest challenges. This article presents some helpful methods to more accurately rank heat sink performance. As is common to the electronics industry, the focus shall be on medium powered discrete electronic components.
Synthetic Air Jet for Electronics Cooling
The synthetic jet is a very good way to enhance the heat transfer on the impingement surface. This article explores the experimental tests performed by some of the leading researchers in the field: Amitay, McGuinn, Murray, O’Donovan, Pavlova, Persoons and Valiorgue, who studied synthetic jets under various conditions.
Waste Heat Recovery of Electronic Equipment
With the rapid increase of power dissipation in electronics’ components, the energy needs for cooling are also increasing at a rapid pace. During the process of activating and cooling components, heat is generated and dumped in the atmosphere. This wasted energy on a global scale is huge.
Effect of Cross-Flow on Straight and Inclined Jets
Jet impingement is a very effective solution for cooling electronic devices, because it can create a high heat transfer rate on impacting a surface. As the power density of modern chips keeps increasing, using fluid jets as a thermal management methods shows great potential.
