In a world of ever-increasing electronics, our lives are continuously impacted by devices that incorporate some sort of heat-generating circuitry. When it comes to electronics that dissipate power in the form of heat during normal operation, it is often necessary to manage this heat, to ensure the components don’t exceed their maximum allowable temperatures.
One of the most common methods to manage power dissipation is through the use of a heat sink. Heat sinks are used on a broad range of electronics, ranging from CPUs to motor drivers. Download our heat sink calculator to accurately define heat sink requirements on your next project.
