HiK™ or high conductivity plates are heat spreaders with embedded heat pipes to transport heat as desired in your system. These plates are particularly useful for cooling of multiple high power components. The HiK™ plate collects and moves the heat from these discrete heat sources to the liquid cooled edge or air cooled heat sinks with minimal temperature gradients.

As electronics continue to move forward with higher power and smaller packaging, HiK™ plates are a great way to move heat to boost performance. Whether it’s adding more power to the system or reducing the hot spot temperature in hot ambient environments, HiK™ plates provide a reliable, easily integratable thermal solution.

ACT offers HiK™ plates with the following material and benefits:
