### Cooling of Chips in Circuit Boards

Problem
• One way to cool chips mounted on circuit boards is to encapsulate the boards in metal frames that provide efficient pathways for conduction to supporting cold plates.
• Heat Generated by the chips is then dissipated by transfer to water flowing through passages drilled in the plates.

Circuit Board Containing Chips

Assumptions
• Isothermal cold plate
• All heated generated by circuit boards is dissipated by cold plates
• Circuit boards may be represented as isothermal at an average surface temperature.
• Air flow over circuit boards approximates that over a flat plate in parallel flow.
• Part A: To find how much heat is dissipated by the circuit boards
• Part B: To find how much of the heat generated by the circuit boards is transferred to air
Part A

With a total of N = 10 passages, the total heat dissipation is

50.2 kW

Part B

To find how much of the heat generated by the circuit boards is transferred to air.

2,670W 9.5 percent(low) Heat Transfer to the Air

Results
• Air not effect for Cooling Microchips
• The cooling capacity of the cold plates far exceeds that of the air flow. However, the challenge would be one of efficiently transferring such a large amount of energy to the cold plates without incurring excessive temperatures on the circuit boards
