ABSTRACT
The continued performance evolution of microprocessors has resulted in some significant technical and cost challenges in thermal management. This talk will focus on describing the specifics of the thermal management challenges. It will track the evolution of thermal requirements and the future trends. It shows that when faced with the need to provide thermal solutions the engineering practioner is faced simultaneously with technical and business aspects of the issue, both of which dictate the final solution. A tendency to extend evolutionary solutions is typically the path of lower resistance. However, a case is made for the need to develop technologies for future challenges and to have a portfolio of solutions and thermal management approaches that can be brought to bear effectively when needed.

ABSTRACT
The development of microelectronic heat sinks, which are compatible with sustainable development, involves the achievement of a subtle balance between a superior thermal design, minimum material consumption, and minimum pumping power. Due to the explosive growth in the power dissipation of electronic systems, substantial material streams, as well as energy consumption and entropy generation rates, are associated with the cooling of computers, telecommunication modules, and other categories of electronic equipment. This ITHERM Keynote explores the potential for the least-energy optimization of natural and forced convection cooled, rectangular plate heat sinks. A Coefficient of Performance, COPT, relating the cooling capability of the heat sink to the energy invested, is defined and used to compare heat sink configurations and cooling modes. Guidelines for "sustainable" heat sink designs, operating in natural and forced convection, are suggested. The COPT - based least-energy optimization is compared and contrasted to the more familiar entropy generation minimization (EGM) methodology.

ABSTRACT
Thermal management of electronics is vital to the successful design, manufacture, and tactical operation of a variety of military electronic systems. Designs employ all modes of heat transfer including: conduction, natural and forced convection, aerodynamic heating, radiation, and two-phase heat transfer. A variety of heat sinks and heat exchange devices are employed, including the use of cold plates, electronic chassis coldwalls, compact heat exchangers, air- and vapor-cycle refrigeration systems, phase change materials, thermoelectric devices, spray-cooling, heat pipes and capillary pump loops. This keynote address will describe several military electronic systems on a variety of platforms and discuss the thermal management issues involved in the design of the thermal control systems. Specific examples will be employed in the presentation to emphasize the variety of thermal management problems encountered and the solution techniques employed.
