Default Heatsinks, Alternative?

Could this be an alternative to regular heatsinks?


Look at Die 41985.

When you get a quote, you will no longer find those profiles interesting

The dissipation per (insert your payment media) is pretty low.

Everything is possible....to do the impossible just takes a little while longer.

I have had success building a heatsink using aluminum stock from a local homecenter. By alternating the 1-1/2" wide 1/16th" stuff with the 1/2" wide 1/8th" thick stock, you can build a sink as large as your application necessitates. You just have to sandwich your output devices between one of the layers.

I was able to sink the heat for a 300wrms car amp with this method.
