New Heat Sinks Reduce LED Temperatures by 50%

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) has introduced STARâ„¢ heat sinks, specially designed to provide high-performance convection cooling of high heat flux LEDs. These new heat sinks mitigate the intensity of heat generated by high output LEDs to ensure maintenance-free, ultra long service life.

Norwood, MA, July 22, 2010 --( High-power LED applications, including arrays of LEDs, require thermal management like other semiconductor devices. High temperatures not only degrade an LED’s lifetime, but also cause lower light or non-uniform output effects that can significantly affect the application. With today’s increasing power densities, higher demand for light output, and limited space, more advanced cooling solutions are needed. ATS STAR™ heat sinks reduce LED temperatures by more than 50%. The heat sink design features a low profile, spread fin array that maximizes surface area for more effective convection (air) cooling. ATS STAR™ heat sinks are fabricated from extruded aluminum, which minimizes thermal resistance, reduces weight, and keeps costs low. Learn more at
