Heat Pipe Thermal Ground Planes (TGP) with CTE Matching Increase Efficiency of Power-Generating Components

Sponsored by Thermacore, Inc.

Because advanced semiconductors and embedded technology are generating more heat than ever before, Thermal Ground Planes (TGP) were developed to handle increased thermal dissipation. Functioning as a planar heat pipe, the thin, flat form factor of a TGP is ideal for directly mounting electronic devices in military, aerospace and other high-performance applications. A TGP reduces interface resistance and provides very high thermal conductivity compared to conventional solid conductors.
