|Market Trends and Developments for Coolants for Electronic Systems|
|Keywords: Trends, Electronic coolants, Needs|
|Single- and two-phase liquid cooling system design employs a wide range of fluids as coolants for electronic system design. These liquid cooling systems must meet market requirements for a wide range of market segments, including: • Military vehicles and systems, including tracking and radar • Automotive and specialized vehicle systems, including HEV/EV inverter systems • Vehicle energy storage systems, including ultracapacitor arrays • Vehicle cabin air conditioning for passenger and for energy storage cooling • Semiconductor fabrication and test equipment • Wind turbine, industrial electrical inverters, and long-distance power transmission systems • Traction systems (primary power inverters and converters, auxiliary converters) • Medical detection and imaging systems • Computing systems Each market sector has differing requirements with implications for current and future coolant development. This presentation will • Identify significant requirements by market • Indicate major trends and new requirements which are currently challenging system hardware and coolant manufacturers • Identify current developments in new fluids for electronics cooling.|
