This invention relates to thermal management for removing heat generated by a heat source (110). This is done by a combination of a heat conducting member (120), which is thermally connected to the heat source in one end and to a remotely arranged heat sink (130) in the opposite end, and a synthetic jet actuator (140). The synthetic jet actuator is arranged to provide active cooling directly onto the heat source by generating and directing an air flow towards the heat source. The synthetic jet actuator comprises a resonator cavity housing (150) and an oscillating member (160). The oscillator member is arranged at least partly inside said resonator cavity. The combination of the heat conducting member and the synthetic jet actuator provides a highly efficient cooling.
