Title: Variable pin fin construction to facilitate compliant cold plates

Abstract

A device can comprise a plurality of layers stacked and bonded on one another, wherein at least one layer of the plurality of layers comprises: a first active region comprising first pin portions positioned in a first planar arrangement; and a second active region comprising second pin portions positioned in a second planar arrangement, wherein the second planar arrangement is different from the first planar arrangement. The device can also comprise a conformable layer adjacent to at least one of the plurality of layers.
