Cold Plate Liquid Cooling Solutions:
High Efficiency for High Power

Protect high-power electronic components with high-performance liquid cold plates from Aavid Thermacore.

liquid cold plate high-power coolingThermal cooling for increasing heat fluxes and power loads in compact electronic packages is driving thermal solution designers away from the limitations of air cooling to liquid cooling in many demanding applications. To satisfy critical thermal management needs in applications as diverse as military/aerospace, medical equipment, power electronics, lasers, renewable energy and transportation, Aavid Thermacore liquid cold plates provide the top performance and reliability designers trust.

Aavid Thermacore’s custom liquid cooling component cold plates include tube-in-plate, aluminium vacuum-brazed and copper brazed types for various applications. Tube-in-plate cold plate materials consist of copper or stainless steel tubes pressed into a channelled aluminium or copper extrusion or machined plate. Finally, Aavid Thermacore offers copper cold plates that incorporate vertical fin technology (e.g. micro-channel technology) or for higher performance, our specialised powdered metal construction. Aavid Thermacore's custom liquid cold plate assemblies are designed specifically for each application's unique thermal/mechanical requirements. Aavid Thermacore's liquid cooled cold plates can be engineered to perform with diverse coolants, including water, water/glycol solutions, dielectric fluids, oils and synthetic hydrocarbons (PAO).
