SEMICONDUCTOR AND ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES CHALLENGED BY THERMAL LIMITATIONS

 

OnScreen to Commercialize WayCool Thermal Management Cooling Technology

 

 

PORTLAND, Ore. — April 4, 2006 — OnScreen Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ONSC), a leading provider of innovative LED technology and solutions, today announced its plan to commercialize its patent pending WayCool thermal cooling technology, for applications within the semiconductor and electronics packaging industries. WayCool offers ground-breaking thermal management techniques that will help stem performance problems associated with heat dissipation.

 

OnScreen designed and developed advanced LED products utilizing thermal management technology to enable rapid cooling without active cooling devices such as fans, air conditioners or other mechanical aids.  Based on the success in signage applications, OnScreen’s research and development team began investigating other uses for this proprietary technology in thermally sensitive electronics. The goal of
WayCool is to provide a means for designers of electronic systems and subsystems to transport heat effectively at very high rates increasing the performance and duty cycles of electronics. Additional benefits are anticipated to be realized in significant reductions in electrical and mechanical noise.  The first WayCool prototype has been examined and tested for its effectiveness on cooling microprocessor based motherboards by Michael Schuette, PhD., Engineering Program Manager for TAEUS, a nationally recognized independent testing and validation laboratory.

 

 “One of the biggest challenges and limitations in the development of high-end desktop computers, workstations and gaming devices is the thermal dissipation associated with advanced processors,” said Dr. Schuette. “Our testing showed that the first version of WayCool technology clearly demonstrated superior cooling capabilities. The most dramatic cooling effects were observed in the range in which high-end processors operate under full load. In actual daily use, these processors are rarely operated at full load.”

 

Initial market potential evaluation by PrincipiaPartners, a second external research firm, indicates the potential market opportunity for technology derived from WayCool in the two most popular brands of processors in the PC and server markets approaches $5.3 billion. Subsequent applications of cooling technology resulting from WayCool include electronic gaming devices, military weapon systems, radar systems, avionics and automotive computer systems. OnScreen has obtained provisional patents in the US for the technologies resulting from WayCool and have patents pending in North America, Asia and the European Union.

 

“We are very excited about the results from WayCool and are developing real-world solutions to solve the thermal barrier/heat dissipation issues presented by today’s advanced electronics. We will begin licensing and commercializing WayCool thermal cooling technology later this year,” said Charlie Baker, CEO and President of OnScreen.
