THERMAL MANAGEMENT OF MOBILE DEVICES

ABSTRACT
This paper presents the experimental study of using phase change material in the cooling of the mobile devices. It investigates the thermal performance of transient charging and discharging of mobile devices in three different situations; making phone calls frequently, making long duration calls, and making occasional calls. The results show that mobile devices are heated up fastest during the long duration usage. Experiments are also conducted to determine the effect of fins and effect of orientation of the mobile device on its thermal performance.
