Immersion Cooling

Immersion Cooling

Immersion cooling is the process of immersing electronic hardware in a non-conductive liquid such as Engineered Fluids Electrocool or 3M Fluorinert FC-43. Data Centers are among the largest users of immersion cooling to lower their overall energy consumption.

As computing power continues to increase, so does the need to remove heat from those computing systems. The traditional method of using fans is loud, and it also loses efficiency as the ambient temperature increases. Immersion cooling eliminates the need for fans and heat sinks, and offers a more energy efficient method of cooling while eliminating the noise from fans.

Industries and Applications

Testing Specifications

Samtec Interconnects are used in a variety of industries and are used in many different environments. Because of this, Samtec has introduced testing its connectors for immersion cooling applications in addition to the standard qualification testing that interconnect systems are tested towards.

Additional Tests Included for Immersion Cooling Applications:

  • Mating/Unmating/Durability (Humidity, LLCR, Thermal Age and Thermal Shock)
  • Insulation Resistance/Dielectric Withstanding Voltage (IR/DWV)
  • Current Carrying Capacity
  • Current Cycling

(This is the second in a series of blogs, from Sandeep Sankararaman, Samtec’s Principal RF and Signal Integrity Engineer, discussing design strategies for high-bandwidth RF launches. The first is entitled “What Is An RF Connector Launch?” The third, coming next week, discusses GN...
If you’ve been paying attention to the Coming Soon section in our most recent web updates, you might have noticed we have been working on an upgraded Checkout system for the website for the last several months. We’re happy to announce that this application is now accepting orders...
As signal speeds increase, each part of the signal path getting to and from the device needs to work to higher frequencies.  Strategies that worked in the past no longer suffice and cheaper connectors no longer make the cut. Cable lengths and trace lengths need to get shorter to ...
This month, we released a major new version of our Checkout to a beta state, made some upgrades to how we show lead times online, made 3D model downloads easier from the Search, and released a few more content updates. Here are the major website updates to Samtec.com for July 202...
Something occurred to me recently. AI hardware system architectures are really applications-specific. Computing platforms from laptops, desktops, workstations and servers follow classical architectures. Inputs, outputs, a central processing unit, busses (control, data and memory)...
