Boyd Anodized Extruded Heat Sinks Max Clip™

Description
The Aavid Max Clip™ System is a high performance, low cost thermal solution for discrete power semiconductors. This thermal system combines Aavid’s Max Clips with specialized extruded Max Clip Heat Sinks to provide optimized thermal contact. The system eliminates the need for mounting holes, screws or rivets while optimizing the contact and thermal efficiency of the heat sink. Max Clips™ are quick, robust attachments that save on labor and hardware costs and increase design flexibility. Max Clips apply consistent, uniform pressure at the center of the semiconductor which improves contact with the heat sink for better thermal performance and maximum component reliability. Max Clips maintain constant assembly force even as interface material deteriorates or shifts over time. This is in contrast to conventional nuts, bolts, and rivets where the mounting force is set at the time of assembly and can lessen over the product’s service life. Aavid offers more than 50 standard extrusion profiles that can be used with over 20 different Max Clips to suit a wide range of applications. The Max Clip™ System is designed to accommodate a variety of semiconductor packages including TO-220, TO-218, TO-247, TO-3P, and packages without mounting holes like TO-262, TO-273, TO-274, and TO-251.
