Today we'd like to share the results of our work on integration of Thercon LHPs (loop heat pipes) into Fastwel modules. This is very important and interesting experience of our work with high performance embedded PC modules.
Our review will cover VIM556 (graphic controller module) and CPC518 (CPU module) Comact PCI Serial standard with conductive heat transfer. The modules are used for production of high performance systems that are able to work at stress environment conditions.
Below: what we achieved
We've performed our tests using special stand (picture 1). To evaluate the heat transfer we input the modules into the liquid cooled server box body
Let's start with VIM556
Graphic controller module VIM556 (picture 2) is used for digital information processing and output of graphic data to the monitors. Graphic card of MXM 3.0 standard - NVIDIA Quadra K2100M is integrated into the serially produced module.

· lopp heat pipes (LHP) application in the module enabled to install graphic card Quadro P3000 (75Wt) and Quadro P5000 (100Wt) by Nvidia.
· LHP application enabled to lower the module weight for almost 2 times
Tests of CPC518
CPU module CPC518 can be applied in high performance systems that are able to work at stress environment conditions with high reliability and flexibility for different extension interfaces support. CPC518 utilises Intel Xeon D15xx processor. Module energy consumption is 84 Wt
In process of collaboration of Fastwell and Thercon an experimental design conductive heat transfer solution for CPC518RC module was tested (picture 3).

The experimental radiator showed effectivness of approach to build CPC518RC modules with LHP heat transfer. To test the ability of serial production of CPC518RC a pilot batch has been produced and tested.
We thank our partners for such a broad feedback and we hope for further collaboration!
