Clips, Screws or Glue? Heat Sink Attachment Technical Brief

Heat Sinks need to be attached somehow to the heat source. There are alot of options, but where do you get clear objective information on which to use? Well look no further than at ATS!  We’ve got two resources for you that will make your life easier as an engineer:

(1) Our engineering white paper from our Qpedia eMagazine does an excellent job of explaining the options and the science behind them

(2) We’ve put together a two-page quick reference that graphically outlines the pros and cons of each option helping you to make a decision based on technology, PCB space, and cost. You’ll find it handy and helpful.

If you have questions, we’re happy to answer.
