Are your chips or voltage regulators getting too hot? Consider these small heat sinks to remove all that thermal energy!
These small aluminum heat sinks are used to draw heat away from a components that produces heat. The shape of the heat sink maximizes the heat dissipation in two ways. First, the aluminum has a high thermal conductive property, so it will absorb the heat very quickly and then the heat will radiate off of the heat sink because the shape contains a lot of surface area. Add convection (moving air) and the heat (thermal energy) will be remove more quickly.
Dimensions of the heat sink: 0.448 inches (11.3797 mm) x .4345 inches (11.0363) x 0.2 inches (5.08 mm)
Thermal compound is also available. in the price options.
The thermal compound is used to stick the heat sink to the electrical component and the thermal compound also has a high thermal energy conductivity.
