Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) now provides fanSINKS heat sinks for component sizes ranging from 27 to 70 mm². The wider size range accommodates hot semiconductor components, including FPGAs, ASICS and other package types used in telecomm, optics, test/measurement, military and other applications.   

ATS fanSINKS feature cross-cut, straight aluminum fins. They support omnidirectional airflow for optimum cooling performance from attached fans and ambient air. The sinks are provided with a pre-assembled thermal interface material to optimize heat transfer.   

fanSINKS attach securely to components using ATS’ proven maxiGRIP™ high reliability mechanical attachment system. maxiGRIP includes a high performance plastic frame clip and a stainless steel spring clip. For larger components, fanSINKS mount tightly to PCBs using provided PEM pushpins that secure into 3.0 mm through holes.   

Each fanSINK requires its own fan, which should be selected based on the cooling application. Fans by Delta, Sunon, San Ace and other manufacturers are vetted by ATS engineers for ready deployment in cooling applications. For secure fan attachment, ATS provides stainless steel mounting screws in a range of lengths for different fan heights. The screws secure the fan into pre-drilled holes in the base of the fanSINK.   

ATS fanSINK active heat sinks are available from Advanced Thermal Solutions’ global distributor network.
