Disclosed is a method for the use of a high-pressure air-cooling source and recharge system for notebook cooling. Benefits include improved thermal performance, improved functionality, improved performance, and improved design flexibility.

Background

              Passively cooled devices are inherently limited. The absence of a high-pressure source limits the air velocity for cooling.

Description

              Disclosed is a method for the use of a high-pressure air-cooling source and recharge system for notebook cooling. A pressurized canister stores cooling air for electronic system cooling (see Figure 1). The canister is recharged with a small, low-flow rate compressor pump (trickle recharge of the source).The cooling system provides either burst cooling or temporarily sustained cooling, depending on the design of the distribution system. It functions as an auxiliary cooling system for devices that are otherwise passively cooled in a notebook platform. The system can be internal or external.

              Distribution, which is not part of the disclosed method, can be lightweight and low pressure.

Advantages
