Radio Base Station Cooling: Putting Two-Phase Thermal Technology to Work

Meet tough thermal demands for the rapidly growing number of remote radio units (RRUs) by calling on Aavid Thermacore expertise in two-phase heat pipe development. We design solutions that put the inherent advantages of heat pipe concepts to work for you.

two-phase heat pipe RRU coolingHeat dissipation via natural convection, the product of Aavid Thermacore two-phase heat transfer technology, is being used as the basis for more and more reliable thermal solutions for protecting crucial electronics components from harsh climatic conditions.



superior cooling solutionRadio base station units often operate in severe weather — and RRUs are frequently positioned on masts, towers, skyscraper roofs and other structures that combine difficult maintenance with punishing thermal conditions. Aavid Thermacore two-phase solutions meet these challenges with optimized design, light weight, rugged construction and the ability to operate in horizontal or vertical orientation. Aavid Thermacore designs are straightforward, robust and matched to the conditions they will encounter, thanks to our expertise in selecting thermal envelopes and working fluids. Our designs stand up to:

  • Shock and vibration
  • Harsh weather conditions
  • Typical ambient temperatures ranging from -40°C to +55°C
  • Occasional temperatures ranging from -40°C to +60°C (with the unit able to survive temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C)

There's more. Aavid Thermacore is ready for future challenges of increasing power and bandwidth, thanks to R&D and advanced technologies, including lightweight magnesium heat pipes and Advanced Solid Conduction concepts. Result: high-volume, repeatable-performance two-phase systems that keep radio base station electronics operating smoothly.
