HEAT is the computer industry's greatest pain point today and for the foreseeable future.

Nisvara technology solves the computer industry heat problem with a new system-level approach that requires no internal fans and no airflow for heat removal. The Nisvara Thermal Management System can remove more heat from the system than the best internal-fan-based airflow solutions. Nisvara's current technology can handle the heat requirements of the next several generations of CPUs, graphics chips and RAM, along with the other components, without any additional energy consumption.

At its simplest, Nisvara moves heat from Point A to Point B.

Overall, the Nisvara system-level design first focuses on taking heat away from hot-spot chips, graphics boards, disk drives, and the power supply (the Point A heat sources). Then the design moves the heat, through patent-pending Nisvara heat extraction technology, to the Sokol Thermal Ground™ of the system (Point B), also patent-pending and named for John Sokol, its inventor and Nisvara's CTO.

Finally, the Nisvara system heat extraction design moves the heat to an external location, to outside the enclosure, for dissipation appropriate to the computer application.

Nisvara's approach to these technical solutions recognizes that there are primary, secondary, and even tertiary heat sources in a computer system that need to be handled differently - intense hot points versus more generalized sources. Nisvara applies a product family combining various materials, designs, and processes to enable comprehensive system heat extraction.

With this system-level solution, Nisvara provides immediate impacts that aid manufacturers and system integrators in three major sectors of the computer industry: technical workstations, industrial and military computers, and servers.

For technical workstations built with Nisvara system heat extraction technology, chips are no longer performance-limited by heat, because the heat they generate is removed and thus no longer forces them to automatically clock back. In addition, noise from internal fans is eliminated, since those fans are absent from the design.

For industrial and military computers, Nisvara technology can provide sealed systems so that no dirt, water, sand, germs, or other disruptive elements move in or out of air vents, as there are no vents or filters required. The Nisvara design for removing heat from the disk drive also serves to cushion the drive from factory-floor vibrations or military-vehicle road impacts, thereby cutting vibration-related disk errors and the slowdown in performance that they cause. Further, the lack of air vents in Nisvara systems for factories means that EMI from other equipment will not enter the system and impact its electronic components. For the military, this means there are no EMI emissions, through air vents, for potential enemy detection.

For rack-based server systems, the Nisvara technology moves heat outside the system without "baking" the top-of-the-rack units. Further, by reducing the component-degrading impact of heat, operators of these new server systems will achieve improved MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and thus will cut costs required to fix or replace server systems, including reduced operations down time and lower costs for maintenance call-outs.
