Norwood, MA, April 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- ATS has recently launched a new product line of maxiFLOW heat sinks, specially designed to cool DC-DC converters. ATS’ patented maxiFLOW technology cools millions of BGAs and other PCB components. The same technology is now available for cooling eighth, quarter, half and full brick modules.
Unlike other converter heat sinks, the patented maxiFLOW heat sink design reduces air pressure drop and provides greater surface area, increasing thermal performance by 30-200%.
The brick DC-DC converter heat sinks offer a range of fin patterns, directions and profiles to match different height and weight restrictions and airflow patterns. All of these heat sinks are protected with a gold anodized finish.
Each heat sink is provided pre-assembled with a layer phase-changing thermal interface material to enhance heat transfer from brick to heat sink. All of these heat sinks also come with three sets of screws in lengths of 5, 6 and 8 mm for varied attachment situations. The heat sinks’ pre-drilled hole patterns fit all major DC-DC converter designs.
The new line of heat sinks can be used with Vicor’s DC-DC converter bricks, including their military-COTS applications. This includes the Vicor Micro, Mini and Maxi series of converters.
DC-DC converters are circuits which convert direct current (DC) from one voltage level to another. They are extensively used in electronic devices serving communications, computing, data storage, health care, industrial equipment, instrumentation and test and measurement. Heat sinks are typically required to keep the converters running within safe operating temperatures.
Vicor’s Maxi, Mini, and Micro series DC-DC converters are relied upon by over eight thousand OEMs for their proven performance, broad coverage of input and output voltages, ease of mechanical mounting and thermal management flexibility. These converter modules use advanced power processing, control, and packaging technologies to provide the performance, flexibility, and ruggedness expected in a Military COTS product. High frequency ZCS/ZVS switching, advanced power semiconductor packaging, and thermal management provide high-power density with low noise and high efficiency.
By combining technology from industry leaders Vicor and ATS, it can be ensured that DC-DC converters will have superior performance in the harshest environments, which is vital for military and aerospace applications.
