Cooling is always a „hot“ topic when configuring crates. Especially now, with the next generation of MicroTCA currently in discussion within PICMG we will soon see modules that consume much more power, going beyond the existing 80 Watts limit. This talk calls to mind the basics of cooling and what mistakes to avoid to keep the modules cool. It also shows which tools crate manufacturers use to simulate and test the cooling performance from a crate level down to the module level.
