Ducted Book Cooling

      Disclosed is a method of forced air cooling high power modules
which are situated in a column on a card.

      The Figure shows a book insert containing geometry to channel
fresh air independently to each downstream module.  The channels also
divert warm exhaust air from the upstream module away from the
downstream modules.  The shape of the duct admits air evenly to three
heatsinks while providing airflow over other portions of the card
beneath the duct.
