Unformatted text preview: act heat from chips in the CPU *Microcooling technology developed using silicon micromachining methods *(110) oriented wafer is anisotropically etched. *Glass plate with fluid supply holes is anodically bonded over the grooves *Input and output manifolds also etched into the silicon at the same time as the grooves *Over a 1cm2 area: * Thermal resistance ≈ 0.1oC/W measured for water flow rate of 10cm3/s * Power dissipation capability of 600 W/cm2 *For optimal cooling efficiency: * Fins = 50μm wide x 300μm height * Equally spaced at 50μm *Dimensions corresponded closely to typical silicon wafer thickness *And to typical anisotropically etched (110) structures realized in practice *Fabrication of such miniature structures would be extremely difficult in materials other than silicon *Severe thermal mismatch problems are likely to be encountered temperature cycling if silicon is not used as the material for the heat-sink Paper 9, Section V Applications to Electronic Devices Christina Yee ME‐119 Two Areas of Application 1. High‐Power Devices 2. Silicon Photovoltaic Converter • Field Controlled Thyristor • V‐groove Multijunction Solar Cells – Switching device with both forward and reverse blocking – Low forward voltage drop in on‐state – Conversion efficiency between 20‐26% (increase from previous 18% efficiency) Light (Device contains 52 cathodes, 53 grid fingers) Epitaxial Groove‐Filling Process • Diffusion cycles last 100+...
