This paper presents a set of transient computational analyses for selected IC packages with the purpose of calibrating the merits of Phase Change Materials (PCMs) in four different configurations. Results indicate the merit of each configuration. PCM can be added to the electronic equipment with relative ease and the passive nature of this cooling solution makes it an attractive option.
