Immersion Cooling is a well-proven technology in many industries today, most especially when it comes to high power transformers and EV battery packs, it’s the most efficient way to thermally and electrically protect high heat density components.

Computer hardware has been immersion-cooled since the early 1960s with some of the first supercomputers being fully submerged into a dielectric liquid. The main reason for this approach not going mainstream was most probably because we simply didn’t need to do it.

We took the path of less resistance. Lower density chips are better off cooled by air but Moore’s Law has been constantly met and now we’re in a very different situation where some major trends are aligning.

Detailed in this white paper is how the sum of these trends poses a unique challenge and opportunity to the data center industry and our connected world - and how the team at Submer are intending to embrace this challenge
