Heat Sinks cool condensed electronic packages.

Press Release Summary:



Fabricated from lightweight extruded aluminum, maxiFLOW(TM) heat sinks are utilized for cooling BGAs and hot components inside electronic systems. Featuring low profile spread fin arrays to enable convectional air cooling within restricted/low air flow conditions, they are available in lengths and widths ranging from 10 x 10 mm to 60 x 60 mm, and heights starting at 2 mm.

Heat Sinks Deliver High Performance in Low Airflow Conditions

Norwood, Massachusetts, January 19, 2006 - Advanced Thermal Solutions has introduced maxiFLOW(TM) heat sinks for cooling BGAs and other hot components in the restricted air flow conditions typical of today's condensed electronic packages. MaxiFLOW heat sinks feature a low profile, spread fin array that maximizes surface area for more effective convection (air) cooling. The heat sinks are fabricated from extruded aluminum which minimizes thermal resistance from the base to the fins, reduces weight, and keeps costs low. Tests on maxiFLOW heat sinks using an air flow rate of just 100 lfm (linear feet per minute) show that device junction temperatures (Tj) can be reduced by more than 40 percent below the temperatures achieved using other heat sinks.

The expected life span of an electronic component is exponentially dependent on temperature. Cooler parts have longer lives. Higher performance maxiFLOW heat sinks can help ensure reliable product life at a lower cost than custom designed solutions and other extruded sinks. MaxiFLOW heat sinks are available in lengths and widths ranging from 10 x 10 mm to 60 x 60 mm, and heights starting at just 2 mm.

Unit pricing for maxiFLOW heat sinks begins at $2.50 in production quantities. For more information, contact Advanced Thermal Solutions at 1-781-769-2800, or visit www.qats.com.
