Abstract : Experimental and analytical work have been performed to investigate capabilities and thermal performance characteristics of cold plates for electronic equipment cooling. The effort includes air-cooled cold plates, liquid-cooled cold plates, and cold plates provided with heat pipes. Different designs were selected for each of the three categories and thermal tests at different coolant flow and equipment power dissipation rates performed. It has been shown that large amounts of equipment waste heat can be removed by this cooling technique, and thermal performance accurately predicted, particularly with computer-aided analysis.
