Alpha has expanded its wide range of off-the-shelf products to meet customer requirements.

Electronic components have become faster and more compact, generating more heat and increasing thermal densities. This requires using heat sinks of greater size and mass. One of the biggest challenges for thermal/mechanical engineers is mechanically mounting heat sinks while minimizing the amount board real estate used by the attachment hardware. Generating sufficient attachment force is critical with regards to mechanical security and performance of thermal interface materials. Alpha's new EZ clips have been designed to address both issues.

Alpha has created additional, smaller, EZ clip sizes to meet these requirements. The EZ clips mount to our existing Anchors. Using different Anchor lengths, customers are able able to target a desired attachment force. Heat sinks are mechanically attached to the PCB instead of the device's package. Shock and vibration loads are transferred to the PCB instead of the chip and solder balls. If necessary, Alpha can create custom EZ clips to meet with a customer's board layout requirement.
