Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) now provides a family of high performance maxiFLOW™ heat sinks for cooling DC-DC power converters and power modules. The power brick heat sinks are available for full, half, quarter and one-eighth brick sizes.
With proper thermal management, brick DC-DC converters can be used at their maximum operating temperature for optimum performance on PCBs. The ATS maxiFLOW heat sinks reduce junction temperatures (Tj) by more than 20%. Their patented maxiFLOW spread fin heat sink design maximizes cooling performance in low airflow environments. Their spread fin pattern reduces pressure drop on passing air and provides more surface area for heat spreading and convection cooling.
The ATS brick DC-DC heat sinks are provided with Philips head screw sets in five, six and eight mm lengths. They are shipped pre-assembled with a high-performance thermal interface material (TIM).
