HIGH HEAT FLUX APPLICATIONS
Two-phase membrane-based thermal management technology which negates the flow instability and maldistribution issues typical of current two-phase technology. Preliminary experimental data has demonstrated the ability of this technology to achieve heat flux of the order of 1 to 2 kW/cm2 (die level without heat spreading) using water as the working fluid. This represents an order of magnitude increase in the surface cooling rate when compared to existing technology.
Size – Scalable
Status – 4th Generation prototype in testing.
Two-phase membrane-based thermal management technology focused on the ability to maintain a stable and isothermal device surface temperature. The ability rapidly remove vapor from the liquid where it is generated provides the ability to maintain a wetted constant temperature surface. The heat sink exit vapor quality is 100% operating at theoretically minimum flow rates, leading to a pumping power two orders of magnitude less than current technology.
Size - Scalable.
Status – Concept Phase.
