Improving Chip cooling by 250%

The Purdue University researchers, in work funded by Intel Corp, have shown tiny “ionic wind engines” that might improve computer chip cooling by 250%. When used in combination with a conventional fan, the experimental device enhanced the fan’s effectiveness by increasing airflow to the surface of a mock computer chip. The new technology could help engineers design thinner laptop computers that run cooler than today’s machines.
