Splayed Pin Fin Heat Sinks
Cool Innovations introduces the UltraCool P line of splayed pin fin heat sinks. The line generates a cooling premium of 20 to 30% over standard pin fin heat sinks, when operating in low airspeed environments and in the natural convection mode, according to the company. The pin fins feature an array of round pins that are splayed outwards. They possess the same large surface area of conventional pin fin heat sinks, but are not as densely configured. The sparse configuration enables surrounding airflows to enter and exit the pin array in a more efficient manner. The heat sinks are forged from pure aluminum and oxygen-free copper. They are available in a variety of standard sizes, ranging in footprint from 0.5 inches× 0.5 inches to 2.0 inches× 2.0 inches and in height from 0.2 inches to 1.1 inches. The splayed line is suitable for any surface mount package type and is offered with pre-applied double-sided thermal tape as well as mechanical clips.
