University Students Design Innovative CPU Heat Sinks
Digital Manufacturing Challenge: Powering the World by an Innovative Design for CPU Heat Sinks
During SME’s RAPID TCT Manufacturing Poster Challenge, two University of Waterloo students — Lisa Brock and Gitanjali Shanbhag — showcased their winning Digital Manufacturing Challenge submission, “The Copper Cooler: Heat Sink for CPUs.”
"ENERGY AND THE WORK IT CAN DO are fundamental to powering our world. Harnessing energy through its generation or conversion, transfer and storage is often accompanied by heat. SME’s 2019 Digital Manufacturing Challenge emphasized the thermal management or temperature control of systems, processes or devices that generate, convert and transfer or store energy. The journey from entering the competition to becoming the overall winner for our innovative design has brought us immense excitement and interest to generate new ideas in this space."
