Abstract:

The status of Peltier cooling as applied to semiconductor components is described. Five Peltier cooler-semiconductor component devices were designed, constructed, and evaluated. One of these devices is capable of maintaining the case temperature of two high frequency silicon transistors at 35 C while each transistor is dissipating 150 milliwatts and operating at an ambient temperature of 85 C. Recommendations for further study include miniaturization of the Peltier cooler, lower current coolers, and development of Peltier coolers located inside the transistor case. Author
