A detachable cold plate is a thin box-shaped metal structure with internal fins arranged in a pattern to define channels that carry chilled water. One of the outer major surfaces of the cold plate is machined accurately flat to permit good heat transfer contact with a heat source such as semiconductor circuit module.
