Board Level Heat Sinks

Heat Sinks can be used on their own with appropriate interface material and mounting for a standalone, passive solution, which is cooled through natural convection to the ambient air. More advanced systems use heat sinks that have been engineered for forced convection cooling with the use of a fan or blower for more powerful cooling. Heat sinks come in a variety of constructions and choosing the correct geometry is dependent on application parameters such as air flow, flow type, environmental conditions, and available volume.v

Heat sinks are typically made of copper, aluminium, or a combination of materials based on the application.
