[book-filter] Need help tracking down a sci-fi novel(s) read in the late 80's or 90's containing special abilities provided by nanochips.

Asking for a friend!
There were a series of 2 or 3 (more?) by the same author.
Possible plot points: injecting nanochips into people to give them special abilities; on the run using tiny supercomputers that needed to be connected to a tap of running water to keep them cool (there may have been biological based computers as well?); main character wearing a thermally sealed suit so that he could bypass infrared security systems but it had a limited life as the heat absorption built up and would eventually have to vent steam out the back; in the last book i read there was a spaceship to Jupiter to communicate with gaseous lifeforms floating in the atmosphere there.
Hope that's enough clues to start the hunt...
