Power Dissipation Limits for Tablet Cooling
Keywords: tablet cooling, tablet cooling limits, active cooling of tablets
As the performance of tablets continues to increase, some of the most recent introductions contain Intel I7 processors and have performance levels rivaling laptop and desktop computers. Because of touch temperature limitations, these tablets can no longer depend upon natural convection for their cooling. This presentation will show the power dissipation limits imposed upon these high performance tablets and will demonstrate how the addition of a small internal air mover can greatly increase power dissipation while still keeping the external touch temperature within acceptable limits. This presentation will show the power dissipation limits under natural convection and then add power limits as a function of airflow rates due to an internal air mover.
