October 24, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (St. Louis, MO), announced that it has completed the acquisition of Cooligy Inc. (Mountain View, CA), a developer of active cooling technology for microprocessors and heat-generating components. Cooligy adds fluid-based, chip-level cooling technology to Emerson Network Power's family of Liebert cooling solutions, which provide room and rack-level precision cooling for mission-critical equipment. Cooligy's closed-loop, active cooling technology provides low thermal resistance and high reliability for cooling advanced central processing units, application-specific integrated circuits, graphics chips, and large programmable gate arrays. The technology is also enabling the use of high-brightness LEDs for consumer electronics.

"Our cooling solutions are helping users adapt to increasing heat at the room and rack level, while Cooligy is helping manufacturers push processing speeds and power upward," said Emerson Group Vice President Bob Bauer. "Together we enable faster, more powerful processors operating safely and efficiently in higher-density racks and rooms."
