PCs and consumer electronics are facing a variety of challenges as they trend towards smaller form factors and designs. This leaves little room for existing bulky cooling solutions. In addition to this, components with heat flux and hotspots, along with smaller cores are exceeding the limits of many traditional heat sinks and heat pipes. While the technology demands on thermal solutions are increasing, the end user is adding acoustics as another key factor to the selection criteria. Current solutions do not sufficiently address the growing requirement for quiet computing.
Computex Taipei, June 5 9 2007 Asetek, the market leader of thermal management solutions for semiconductors will show their Low Cost Liquid Cooling (LCLC) solution inside the new DTX small form factor platform at Computex this week. DTX is an open industry standard specification initiated by AMD to enable the broad adoption of small form factor PCs.
