Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Method for a heatsink with an integrated TEC and a tapered
Disclosed is a method for a heatsink with an integrated
thermoelectric cooler (TEC) and a tapered base. Benefits
include improved thermal performance, improved functionality, and improved reliability.
� � � � � Conventional heatsink
technologies have approached a limit in their capability to cool some high heat
generating processors in confined spaces. Improved thermal performance is
� � � � � The disclosed method is
a heatsink with a TEC and a tapered base. The increased thermal performance can
cool processors in confined space computing systems.
� � � � � The disclosed method
integrates a thermoelectric cooler into a heatsink base. It is tapered in a
pyramoid shape to reduce the amount of base material. The thermoelectric cooler
pumps heat out from a heat source (such as a processor). The heatsink removes
the heat from the TEC to the surrounding air via conduction and convection.
� � � � � The key elements of
the method include:
• � � � � Thermoelectric cooler
(TEC) integrated into the heatsink base
• � � � � Controlled thermal contact between the base
and TEC because it is integrated into the heatsink base
• � � � � Pyramoid base shape
that spreads the heat to the fin array
• � � � � Integration of the TEC into the base for an
improved thermal solution compared to others of equivalent overall heights
• � � � � Tapered fin base that minimizes the amount
of base material, which results in a...
