Method for a rotating comb thermal hinge

Disclosed is a method for a rotating comb thermal hinge. Benefits include improved thermal performance.

Description

        � � � � � The disclosed rotating comb thermal hinge is a flexible thermal joint that connects multiple thermal elements. The hinge increases the heat-transfer surface area, which improves heat-transfer efficiency. As a result, more areas of mobile devices can be utilized as heat-dissipating surfaces, including the LCD back panels of a notebook computer, folding PDA, or folding cellular phone.

Advantages

        � � � � � The disclosed method provides advantages, including improved thermal performance.
