Abstract

At high-speed switching operations of core memory arrays, it is required that the generated heat be adequately removed to minimize any temperature increase and that a near-isothermal environment be provided. Aluminum ground plane 11 for top and bottom core memory arrays 13 and 15 is provided with tubes or passages 17 for the flow of cooling liquid. At a remote location, an air-cooled heat rejection and a temperature make up systems are provided for the cooling liquid. A tacky, heat conductive compound 19 conducts heat to plane 17 and holds cores 21 in contact with such plane. Insulating plastic housing 23 confines the thermal compound. With the proper liquid flow rate, plane 17 serves substantially as an infinite heat sink.

Liquid Cooling System for Memory Core Array

At high-speed switching operations of core memory arrays, it is required that the generated heat be adequately removed to minimize any temperature increase and that a near-isothermal environment be provided. Aluminum ground plane 11 for top and bottom core memory arrays 13 and 15 is provided with tubes or passages 17 for the flow of cooling liquid. At a remote location, an air- cooled heat rejection and a temperature make up systems are provided for the cooling liquid. A tacky, heat conductive compound 19 conducts heat to plane 17 and holds cores 21 in contact with such plane. Insulating plastic housing 23 confines the thermal compound. With the proper liquid flow rate, plane 17 serves substantially as an infinite heat sink. Since there is a relatively high cooling capacity, temperature sensing of the liquid before it enters the array is done, rather than at the array.
