Abstract

Disclosed is a cold plate that utilizes a single scalable base design, a customizable lid/manifold structure, and mounting inserts to alleviate the cost and difficulty encountered when designing a cold plate for large modules with multiple through holes for mounting. The invention features reduced manufacturing difficulty by reducing CNC mill machine time. By allowing new mounting hole patterns to be easily integrated through the introduction of a boss insert with an annular flow passage, design customization is simplified.
