Clock-throttling isn't the answer: Innovative thermal design supports real-time military application needs
The extended temperature requirements of many military applications often mean slowing down the clock of a hot CPU. Clock-throttling of today's powerful processors works against military users' needs for high performance, but reliability and size/weight requirements of typical systems leave them few other valid choices. Instead, innovative cooling-system design offers the full advantage of high-performance processors without running over the device's recommended temperature range.
