Fans have long been used to cool electronic components in enclosures. Unfortunately as minia- turization of electronic systems, such as computers and communication equipment, continues the ther- mal problem of getting the heat out of tightly spaced circuit cards. This paper discusses a novel approach to removing heat from adjacent circuit cards when no other means of spot cooling is avail- able and rewiring the cabinet to add more cabinet flushing fans is deemed non-cost effective.
