By conducting the heat to the mechanic box, the temperature of the
components reduce to acceptable value.
A dedicated heat-sink fits the structure of the SCB-FL is designed as
The original idea is to use even advanced method with heat-pipe, which
may seems over designed.
Without cooling fan, conduction cooling is built very similar to the ITX
fanless computer (as shown in
example). Cooling components of ITX fanless computer*
The SCB is covered by aluminum block with spaces milled for large
components, remaining height difference will be covered by thermal pad
or glue. With another upper block to clamp two heatpipes in between. The
heat pipe is twisted to reach another heat block that attached on the
bottom* side of the box. Heat from the components finally conducted
to the box. In the ideal situation, the 25Watt of the WRS will spread
over the whole surface of the box, which then actually attached to a
rack via which it is also constructively cooled.
