Lytron's Cold Plates Included In MacroFlow™ Software

March 13, 2003, WOBURN, MA - Lytron Inc., the Total Thermal Solutions ™ Company, announces inclusion of its cold plates in Innovative Research Inc's Macroflow thermal design software. MacroFlow uses Flow Network Modeling (FNM) to provide rapid and accurate analysis of flow and temperature distribution in electronics cooling systems. MacroFlow's addition of Lytron's cold plates will allow thermal engineers to conveniently evaluate and optimize liquid-cooled systems that contain Lytron's standard cold plate products. Lytron cold plates are used in many industries including lasers, semiconductor capital equipment, medical, analytical, and applications using power electronics.

Lytron offers the broadest range of cold plates in the industry. The standard product offering includes the Press-Lock™, Extended Surface™ and High Performance™ Series. The economical Press-Lock cold plates are tubed cold plates. They are compatible with most cooling fluids, including water, and can be drilled and tapped for easy mounting. The Extended Surface cold plates are extrusions for component cooling and offer very low thermal resistance. Lytron's High Performance cold plates are designed for board applications which require very low thermal resistance. Lytron also designs custom cold plates to meet specific OEM requirements.

Charles Carswell, President of Lytron said, "As the leader in cold plates, we want to facilitate our customer's design process. Innovative Research has been selling software products and services for heat transfer to high tech industries for over 12 years. I am confident that the inclusion of Lytron's cold plate performance database into MacroFlow will provide our customers with a convenient and accurate analysis tool."

Dr. Suhas Patankar, President of Innovative Research said, "Lytron has a wide range of innovative thermal management products. Many companies who use MacroFlow for the liquid-cooling systems analysis and design also utilize Lytron's products. To further enhance the productivity of our customer's thermal design process, we expect to make the performance characteristics of all of Lytron's thermal management products available in MacroFlow."

Lytron is the only ISO 9001 Registered Total Thermal Solutions ™ provider. ISO registration provides the assurance that these liquid-cooling products are defect-free and able to provide years of reliable, high performance service.

Lytron designs, develops, and manufactures high performance heat transfer systems and components. Its cooling products include compact cold plates, recirculating chillers, compact and portable non-refrigerated cooling systems, aluminum oil coolers, copper tube fin heat exchangers, stainless steel tube fin heat exchangers, and OEM coils.
