Abstract

This article describes an arrangement which includes a sealed chamber containing a liquid metal where a surface of the chamber is compliant, a means whereby the compliant surface may be caused to engage or disengage from specified areas of contact as a function of chip ambient temperature, a chamber whose compliant surface has affixed to it a disc of sintered diamond so as to effect a path of high thermal conductivity as well as electrical isolation, and a structure adaptable to single or multiple semiconductor device cooling.
