LED Cooling

CapTherm LED CoolingDuring the last ten years, the advances in LED semiconductors have led to an important change in LED applications from that of luminous indicator to that of illuminator. With LEDs now advancing into several lighting fields, LEDs have become one of the standard methods of producing light. Unique to LED lighting is the fact that the source of light is not a filament, gas discharge, or arc, but rather a semiconductor. This is changing the technology associated with the development of lighting, how the lighting will be used, and how the thermal challenges must be resolved.

Instead of most of the thermal energy leaving the source by radiation, an LED system’s thermal energy leaves via the fixture (the fixture in this case is the semiconductor) at a much lower temperature with a mix of primarily natural convection and some radiation. This change in the cooling mechanism for lighting systems cannot be understated, as system designers are not used to thinking and designing for this different thermal system.

CapTherm’s enabling multiphase technology is scalable in size and offers  higher volumetric efficiency compared to liquid and air cooling thus having an ideal application when small form factors are crucial for overall design and feasibility of a new technology.
