ATS Heat Sinks Offer Cooling for NVIDIA Jetson Modules for Embedded, Edge AI, and Robotics Applications

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) has introduced a family of heat sinks developed specifically for cooling NVIDIA® Jetson™ modules, widely used in robotics, embedded, and edge AI applications.

Each straight-fin, black anodized, aluminum heat sink comes with mounting screws or with a steel leaf spring and screws for secure through-hole mounting onto a PCB. Hole pattern guides are included. A high-performance thermal interface material (TIM) is pre-assembled on the attachment side of the heat sink.

The new heat sinks include passive (fanless) and active (fan-ready) options. Active heat sinks ship with hardware for attaching customer-selected fans to match performance needs. ATS includes a list of recommended fan suppliers.

Thermal resistance of these heat sinks is as low as 0.21°C/W and varies by size and active or passive configuration.

NVIDIA Jetson is a leading AI-at-the-edge computing platform with over a million developers. With pretrained AI models, software development kits and support for cloud-native technologies across the full Jetson lineup, manufacturers of intelligent machines and AI developers can build and deploy high-quality, software-defined features on embedded and edge devices targeting generative AI, robotics, AIoT, smart cities, healthcare, agriculture and farming, industrial applications, and more.

The new ATS heat sinks are designed to safeguard component life and performance of the full NVIDIA Jetson lineup of modules, from the high-performance NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin™ to the compact yet powerful Jetson Nano™ series. ATS heat sinks for NVIDIA Jetson modules are available through Arrow Electronics and other authorized ATS distributors.

COMING SOON: Thermal Engineer Day 2024 Cool Project Contest

Thermal Engineer Day started as a way to recognize thermal engineers everywhere for their hard work, innovation and dedication to the science of applying thermodynamics to cooling and heating the important tools we use every day.

All of us at ATS were AMAZED at how many companies participated this year and recognized thermal engineers. And we thought, how can we make Thermal Engineer Day more fun and perhaps more meaningful for the Thermal Management Community in 2024.

So stay tuned! We’ll be announcing in September what we think will be a fun opportunity to further celebrate Thermal Engineer Day on July 24, 2024!

Aluminum Vapor Chambers Provide


ATS does quite a bit of R&D to try and extend the limits of air and liquid cooling. One of our latest achievements is our U.S.A. made aluminum vapor chambers.

Vapor Chambers made of Aluminum and made in the USA.

ATS aluminum vapor chambers are flat and lightweight, without moving parts. These are the only cooling vapor chambers manufactured in the U.S. Lengths range from 25x25mm to 250x250mm (1x1in to 9.8×9.8in).  And we also will do custom materials (such a Titanium or Copper) and sizes!

Manufacturing services for cold plates for electronics cooling

Many companies we work with prefer to design their own cold plates and have another company do the DFMA review and the manufacturing. ATS’ extensive capability for manufacturing cold plates is demonstrated in the wide variety of tubed cold plates it produces to meet each customer’s specific requirements. Copper, stainless steel, aluminum, 4 or 48 passes, ATS has the manufacturing capability to make nearly any tubed cold plate. Different examples of these custom cold plates, made in the USA, are described on the ATS website at the link:

Understanding coolants and components’ materials of construction and their interaction.

CPC has a very helpful white paper and funny but very useful video on the topic of understanding coolants and components’ materials of construction and their interaction. This is one of those niche topic areas that some may not consider, but, is key to avoiding performance and reliability issues in liquid cooling systems.  These are no cost, no email registration required.
