Design How-To 4/7/2009 Post a comment
While the power dissipated by FPGAs is growing, the space allocated to cool these chips is shrinking. In recent years, makers of thermal management products have introduced a wide array of new heat sinks that provide more cooling in a given volume. This article will help engineers looking for more-powerful heat sinks by describing recent innovations in heat sink design and analyzing their impact on heat sink performance.
