Unformatted text preview: Homework 4 1. In class 6 we talked about the importance of heat dissipation from chips and how fins can increase this dissipation. However this heat dissipation is limited by the maximum operating temperature of the chip, usually about 75o C. One solution is to create a 4 X 4 array of copper fins metallurgically joined to the outer surface of a square chip that is 12.7 mm on a side. (35 pts) a) Assuming 1‐D steady‐state conditions with negligible contact resistance between the pins and the chip, sketch and label the equivalent thermal circuit. What is the resistance? b) Make the same assumptions as before, however include a contact resistance of 10‐4 m2‐K/W and sketch, label and calculate the resistance. c) What is the maximum heat rate for both of these situations? d) What is the percentage enhancement of heat transfer of the fins? e) If you use the infinite fin approximate (why can’t you), what happens to the fin heat...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
