|Surface Mount Heat Sinks - The Aavid Thermalloy line of low profile surface mount heat sinks is suitable for SMT power semiconductor devices in D-PAK, D2PAK, D3PAK, and SO-10 packages. Their unique design removes heat indirectly through conduction without making contact with the SMT device like traditional through-hole solutions. The semiconductor’s conventional copper drain pad is modified to extend beyond the edges of the semiconductor package, providing space to mount the heat sink.
