Liquid jet and droplet impingement cooling of the 1cm2 base plate area of a 1mm2 Silicon carbide diode is reported. DI water flowing from a single or two-orifice injection port of diameter 118–130μm at a rate of 4.5–15ml/min, impinges on the diode base plate and undergoes phase change. For practical implementation of liquid impingement cooled electronic devices, a closed loop system with a recovery scheme for the vapor and the excess liquid is developed. Boiling of the thin liquid film on the base plate surface is observed at a superheat of 10°C, measured at a location 3.2mm away from the diode footprint area on the base plate, and a maximum phase change heat transfer effectiveness of 39%. The effects of liquid flow rate, and injection pattern (single or two-orifice) on the heat transfer and the diode current-voltage characteristics are investigated.
