Conduction Cooling Techniques for Rugged Computers
Conduction cooling for modular embedded computers have been used for many years in applications where air cooling is not appropriate. Standardization efforts in that domain have early helped to maitain interoperability of COTS products. The conduction cooled design techniques are continuously improving to meet the requirements for higher power dissipation and lower price.
