Cooling chips down

Abstract:
Semiconductor makers have been struggling to find ways to cool their increasingly powerful chips. Intel's recent cancellation of a 4-gigahertz Pentium 4 processor that might have turned PCs into toaster ovens was a sign that they may be losing the battle.

Help may be on the way, however, from a new crop of startup companies developing novel heat-reduction technologies. Companies such as Cool Chips, Cooligy, iCurie, NanoCoolers and Thorrn Micro Technologies are pursuing multiple approaches, from new ways of circulating liquids or air to remove heat, to variations on semiconductor technology.
