The Aluminium Heat Sink purpose of a heat sink is to maintain the device temperature below the maximum allowable temperature specified by the device manufacturers.
- User friendly
- Low power consumption
- Used when environmental/design controls fail to bring the junction temperature within reasonable limits
- The higher thermal energy transfer efficiency of heat sinks is due to the low thermal resistance between the heat sink and air
- Enhance heat dissipation from a hot surface such as a device generating heat to a cooler ambient, usually air
