Better thermal management promises cheaper, greener, cooler electronics

Efforts in the 'Nano packaging technology for interconnect and heat dissipation' (Nanopack) project have resulted in new 'Thermal interface materials' (TIMs) developed with micro- and nanotechnology to greatly increase heat transfer away from chips and other electronic components, in turn reducing the demands placed on cooling systems, lowering costs and reducing energy consumption.
