Press ReleaseCOMPUTEX, Taipei, June 5 – 9 2007, Asetek, the market leader of thermal management solutions for semiconductors will show their Low Cost Liquid Cooling (LCLC) solution inside the new DTX small form factor platform at COMPUTEX this week. DTX is an open industry standard specification initiated by AMD to enable the broad adoption of small form factor PCs.
PCs and consumer electronics are facing a variety of challenges as they trend towards smaller form factors and designs. This leaves little room for existing bulky cooling solutions. In addition to this, components with heat flux and hotspots, along with smaller cores are exceeding the limits of many traditional heat sinks and heat pipes. While the technology demands on thermal solutions are increasing, the end user is adding acoustics as another key factor to the selection criteria. Current solutions do not sufficiently address the growing requirement for quiet computing.
The Asetek LCLC solution successfully addresses these challenges and is now available for the DTX platform enabling higher performance and lower noise in small form factors.
"While the small form factor is forecasted to be the highest growth category of desktop form factors, a key success factor will be the level of performance and functionality that manufacturers are able to deliver. Asetek's Low Cost Liquid Cooling solution enables DTX partners to design products unconstrained by performance, thermals, or noise level," says TaShana Jett, VP Marketing at Asetek. "We are looking forward to partnering with the DTX ecosystem and demonstrating our solution at COMPUTEX."
