  • Patent number: 8087452
    Abstract: A high performance cold plate cooling device including multiple, relatively thin plates, each having patterns formed thereon that, as arranged within the device, cause turbulence in a fluid passing within the cooling device. Adjacent plates within the cooling device are arranged such that fluid channels within their patterns are arranged crosswise. One or more barriers extending at least a portion of the length of the device separate the crosswise channels into two or more flow sections and increase uniformity of thermal performance over the active plate area. Manufacturing of the device includes stacking the plates in an alternating fashion such that the channels within the pattern of each plate are crosswise with respect to the channels in the pattern of an adjacent plate and adjacent barrier walls abut.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20030196451
    Abstract: A high performance cooling device including multiple, relatively thin plates, each having patterns formed thereon that, as arranged within the device, cause turbulence in a fluid passing within the cold plate. Adjacent ones of the plates within the cold plate are arranged such that fluid passing channels within their patterns are arranged crosswise. The plates may be arranged such that the fluid passing channels within the adjacent plate patterns are at an included angle of between 36 and 60 degrees. Manufacturing of the device includes stacking the plates in an alternating fashion such that the channels within the pattern of each plate are crosswise with respect to the channels in the pattern of an adjacent plate. A pair of end plates, which are stacked at the top and bottom of the assembly, do not have an etched pattern and allow for fluid input and output ports. During operation of the disclosed device, the ports bring fluid, such as a coolant, into and out of the device.
