Abstract : The heat transfer characteristics and performance capabilities of a liquid flow-through module for electronics cooling were investigated experimentally using the Standard Electronics Module, format E (SEM-E) size module. Brayco Micronic 889, a dielectric polyalphaolefin, was tested as the coolant. One surface of the flow-through module was populated with six etched foil heaters placed on the module over the fluid flow path. With thermocouples affixed to the surface and placed in the inlet and outlet tubing, data was gathered and analyzed to quantify module effectiveness in dissipating heat over a variety of power input settings and coolant flow rates.
