Wave Series BGA Heat Sink


The Wakefield-Vette Wave Series Heat Sink Series are a superior choice for cooling BGA applications in which limited height/footprint while achieving maximum surface area. The Wave Series Heat Sinks include a unique clipping mechanism that allows for superior heat transfer while securing the heat sink to the BGA itself. The clipping mechanism allows for easy installation in high production assembly.  


 Features & Benefits

•Approximately 12% better thermal performance than traditional footprint heat sinks
•Height- A low profile design allows for more surface area in a height restricted application
•Clipping mechanism included with heat sink
•Surface Area-  Fin array allows for more surface area for forced convection
•Easily customization

•Easily compatible with major BGA device manufacturers components such as: Broadcomm, Motorola, Freescale, TI, Intel, etc.


Material Specifications

•Heat Sink: Aluminum Alloy 6063-T5 with black anodized finish.
•Spring Clip: 304 Stainless Steel, 1.2mm [0.47"] DIA

•RoHS Compliant
