has introduced a new line of heat Sinks, solid state relay/heat sink
assemblies and accessories. The Crydom HS series includes heat sinks
accepting 1, 2 or 3 industry standard, single, dual or 3 phase SSRs.
Designed for DIN rail or panel mounting, models are available with
thermal impedance ratings from 5.0 to 0.5 degrees C per watt.
Combining proven Crydom solid state relays with the new HS
series heat sinks allows Crydom to offer a variety of standard and
adapted "ready to use" Solid State Relay/Heat Sink Assemblies. Ratings
from 10 to 82.5 amps are available at either 280 or 600 VAC. Standard
features include 3 to 32 VDC input control voltage, zero voltage turn
on, and output RC snubber networks. Single, dual and 3 phase SSR
Assemblies are suitable for controlling most heating, motion or
Additional features of the HS series include RoHS compliance,
UL/CSA/TUV or VDE approved CE compliant Solid State Relays, accessories
including clear plastic touch safe SSR covers for single and 3 phase
SSRs, thermal interface pads for single and 3 phase SSR packages, DIN
rail mounting kits, and SSR hardware mounting kits.

assemblies, visit the product website at www.crydom.com/en/HSseries.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
