Intel, Frore Systems Want to Move Beyond Fans With Solid-State Cooling Chip

cooling manufacturer Flore Systems reportedly unveiled the world’s first solid-state cooling system designed to cool CPUs, GPUs and SoCs running inside devices such as laptops, handheld consoles and tablets. A cooling design called AirJet does not require a fan, instead it uses ultrasonic waves to push air through the cooler. As a result, the device is incredibly thin and capable of dissipating the same amount of heat as a fan-based cooler, while maintaining a very low power consumption and quiet footprint.

Frore Systems has not announced an actual computer with an Airjet solid state cooler. However, the company has already partnered with the likes of Intel and Qualcomm, so we can expect to see Intel and ARM-based laptops with this new cooler technology in the future.

“The future of laptop performance and design rests on advances in thermal engineering,” said Josh Newman, vice president and general manager of mobile innovation at Intel, in a press release. “We worked closely with Frore Systems to integrate AirJet into his Intel Evo platform.

The company has two models, AirJet Mini and AirJet Pro, both of which are only 2.8mm thick. Both models take air in through his four slits at the top of the chiller and enter the interior of the chiller where a small membrane vibrates at ultrasonic frequencies to push the air out the sides of the chiller. .

The main difference between Mini and Pro is size and cooling capacity. As the name suggests, the Mini is the smaller of the two and is intended to cool ultra-thin notebooks and tablets. The Mini delivers a total heat dissipation of 5.25W with a processor die temperature of 85°C, with a maximum power consumption of just 1W. The Mini produces 1,750 Pascal back pressure, weighs just 11 grams, and is 27.5 mm wide and 41.5 mm long.
