Abstract

A cold plate has parallel channels that carry cooling water from an inlet at one corner to an outlet at the diagonally opposite corner in flow paths that are generally parallel. The flow path provides improved cooling, and the generally parallel alignment of the walls that define the cooling channels makes the cold plate more flexible in the direction at right angles to these walls so that the cold plate conforms closely to the shape of the circuit module.
