I am using a LDO with a SOT-223 footprint and since it might get hot, I wanted to make a nice thermal pad under it to dissipate that heat. I googled and I only found thermal pads, but i wanted some ...
Could someone point me to a suitable heatsink for an LM3876 amplifier? Or, even better, a heatsink that I could attach two chips to? Perusing through Mouser's catalog was a bit overwhelming. ...
How do I determine the area of copper needed on a PCB to provide adequate heatsinking for a power SMD MOSFET?
I am planning to use the IRFR5305PBF Power MOSFET (http://www.irf.com/product-info/datasheets/data/irfr5305pbf.pdf) to switch on a load. I have determined that I need an external heatsink with Rthsa ...
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_grease All these compounds conduct heat far better than air, but far worse than metal. They are intended to fill gaps that would otherwise hold air, not ...
I'm using a KSC1173 TO-220 power transistor in a design, and I need to calculate the case temperature for the maximum average power dissipation, to see if the power dissipation falls under the ...
Are the thermal resistance values of heat sinks/etc reasonably reversible? If I wanted to dissipate an internal ambient temperature rise, could I use an internal heat sink on the enclosure wall ...
