The utility of a synthetic jet ejector for thermal management at low flow rates is discussed. A synthetic jet ejector typically consists of a primary "zero-mass-flux" unsteady jet driving a secondary airflow through a low profile, high aspect ratio channel. A simple configuration of a nominally two-dimensional jet ejector in a rectangular channel is used to investigate the effects of channel width on the induced flow rate, power dissipated, heat transfer coefficient and thermal efficiency. An active heat sink for high power microprocessors is developed using the jet ejector concept and its performance is discussed.
