The speed of high end microprocessors and graphical processors is limited by the on-chip temperatures that are developed during operation. For home desktop computing, a large heat sink and fan may be an adequate solution for the time being, but for server farms, unnecessarily pulling heat out of a CPU that does not affect its performance is a wasteful and expensive strategy. This additional heat finds its way into the building environment and must then be removed by the most expensive thermal management solution available: an air conditioning unit.

The most efficient thermal management system removes as much heat as much as possible at each level before passing the remaining heat onto the next level. Use of thin-film thermoelectrics introduces a fundamentally new methodology for capturing and channeling heat using thermal systems that can exhaust the heat directly outdoors, thus reducing the demands on cooling systems at the macro level. Thin-film TECs with their higher heat pumping capacity can be placed close the hot spot and pump just that heat which typically may be only 1-3 Watts.
