Heat Sinks

New Heat Sink Series with Push Pin Mounting System

July 11th, 2011


Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc.’s new series of its maxiFLOW™ heat sinks now include an integral push pin mounting system for fast, safe attachment of the heat sinks onto BGAs and other hot components
Each heat sink comes with a pair of durable push pins in a choice of plastic or brass. The pins push mount easily and securely into 3.00 mm holes in the PCB. The holes are positioned in industry standard patterns. Plastic pins are lighter and non-electrically conductive; brass pins have added strength and durability for more rugged applications or thicker devices. An integral spring on each pin provides approximately 2 lbs of retention load, depending on the height of the component being cooled and the PCB thickness.
