A Better Alternative to Heat Pipes: Integrating Vapor Chambers into Heat Sinks

George Meyer†CEO
Celsia, Inc

Often in high power density or low profile heat sink applications, the spreading resistances in the base of the heat sink limits the performance of the design. Once it is determined that normal heat sink materials, aluminum or copper, are either insufficient or too bulky to meet the design objectives, the obvious next step is to look at two phase spreading devices, such as heat pipes or vapor chambers.
