Title: Thermal Management Improvements for Transmit/Receive Modules
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00024-13-P-4562
Award Amount: $79,942.00
 

Abstract:

An oscillating heat pipe (OHP) embedded substrate made from low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) material(s) will be designed, simulated, optimized, fabricated, and empirically tested to demonstrate the OHP technology's ultra-high heat transfer rates under real-world microchip operating conditions as found in shipboard Transmit/Receive modules. With guidance from a large supplier of Naval radar systems, ThermAvant will prototype OHP-based cooling solutions that can be directly attached to GaN, Si or SiC microchips without the thermal/mechanical stresses induced by traditional thermal management materials"CTE mismatch with such chips. Phase I and Phase I Option (if awarded) research efforts will focus not only on optimizing thermal performance but also on developing a form factor and manufacturing process(es) that can be easily integrated into current products and assembly flows utilized by T/R Module manufacturers.
