A vapour chamber has the same primary functions and components as a heat pipe in that it is a hollow vessel with a wick structure and a working fluid, but works in a planar fashion.
Vapour chambers spread heat very efficiently from the attached component throughout its whole area thereby reducing the original heat flux and making it easier to manage the heat by natural convection or forced air.
- High precision manufacture
- Very high planar heat spreading capability
- High volumes achievable through stamping
