New porous metal for thermal management from Versarien and the University of Liverpool

December 13, 2012

Versarien, working in conjunction with researchers at the University of Liverpool, has developed a porous metal material that is said to promote better thermal management in electronic components and other products. The technology involves a method called lost carbonate sintering (LCS), which is patented. The method to extract heat from the copper is to push water or another liquid through the porous metal. Even air-cooled approaches using LCS with increased surface area on copper have advantages over milled or micro-machined heat sinks. The company presented at the IMAPS-UK iPower conference.  The company claims that the micro-porous metallic material is up to 10 times more effective at transferring heat energy than conventional micro-channel heat sinks of equivalent size.
