Laird Technologies Thermal Engineer Authors Book

Subject Matter Expert Focuses on Microchannel Heat Sink

(PresseBox) (St. Louis, Missouri, USA, ) Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the publication of "Microchannel Heat Sink: Fabrication and Liquid Cooling System for High Heat Flux Integrated Circuits" by one of its own subject matter experts, Mechanical Engineer III, Shahi Riaz along with Dr. Dereje Agonafer a Professor at University of Texas at Arlington.

According to Mr. Riaz the thesis develops a closed-loop single-phase microchannel cooling system using de- ionized water as a coolant fluid for high heat flux integrated circuits.

"The book illustrates the analytical, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and experimental studies of microchannel heat sink (MHS)," said Riaz. "It describes the fabrication process of MHS on a silicon wafer. It further demonstrates a liquid closed-loop system using MHS, pump, filter and heat exchanger."

With the purchase of Kluver in March 2011, Laird Technologies was able to expand the scope of their thermal management business for usage in medical, telecommunications, and other end-use markets. By promoting an innovative culture and encouraging engineers to author technical papers and books Laird Technologies is able to combine experimental studies with an already broad product line to become one of the only companies offering a complete choice of solutions to these complex and critical temperature control applications. Shahi Riaz's book comprehensively explains the aspects that lead to the design and optimization of Laird Technologies robust liquid cooling solutions and helps contribute to new product developments.

Shahi Riaz joined Laird Technologies in 2007 and is a Mechanical Engineer III in Cleveland, OH. He holds a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering and was awarded a U.S. Patent titled "Assemblies and Methods for Dissipating Heat from Handheld Electronics Devices" in June, 2011. His current responsibilities include the development of new products and/or materials that support current product lines or helps establish new product lines.

As an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective Thermal Management Solutions, Laird Technologies provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional thermal performance and customer satisfaction for applications in the medical, analytical, telecom, industrial, and consumer markets.
