- PowerSiteTM solderable pads enable the solder attachment of discrete power devices, such as a TO-220s or TO-247s, directly to an aluminum heat sink.
- PowerFlexTM technology bonds complex power circuits directly to aluminum heat sinks.
- PowerViaTM thermal columns provide an all-metal thermal connection of PCB SMT-mounted power devices, such as a D2-Paks, to an aluminum heat sink.
These technologies offer improved performance, as well as lower cost over conventional constructions.
Key words: power electronics, thermal management, power device cooling, heat sink mounting, thermal vias.
