I recently purchased IR LED which comes in 0606 package. LED is of 3W (1A at 3.3v according to datasheet) and certainly require cooling but the problem is that it does not have any space for cooling. Also pads are pretty close to each other.
If no cooling pad is given shoould I use ground pad for cooling ? or should I expose both pads ? or should I expose bottom layer copper beneath the LED and connect it to heat sink but not to any pad ? Is there any other way to provide cooling for such components ?
