ATS Offers One Price for All Custom or Off-the-Shelf Heat Sinks Required on a Customer's PCB

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS), a leading thermal management solutions provider, now offers a single, fixed price for the complete set of heat sinks required to cool any PCB.

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS), a leading thermal management solutions provider, now offers a single, fixed price for the complete set of heat sinks required to cool any PCB. The Fixed Cost Board Cooling Program includes all design engineering, hardware, testing, procurement and delivery costs for the heat sinks, thermal interface materials, attachment devices and all other parts required for the effective thermal management of a board’s components.

Whether the solutions are for off-the-shelf heat sinks, custom designed, or a combination of both, ATS can now offer it at fixed cost. The program also eliminates separate costs for design, tooling, samples, verification and supply chain management.

“Now, more than ever, companies are looking to their suppliers for more cost-effective solutions and value-added services, when it comes to thermal management,” said Kaveh Azar, president and CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. “The Fixed Cost Board Cooling Program is like an economic stimulus plan for companies looking for ways to reduce their product development costs, speed time-to-market and ensure thermal reliability.”

To participate, PCB developers simply provide 3D CAD models of their board layout, along with the technical specifications, including power dissipation of all board components. ATS performs a full thermal analysis of the PCB and develops a comprehensive cooling solution for each component on the board. Where possible, ATS engineers will specify existing heat sinks from a portfolio of more than 3000 off-the-shelf and application-specific designs and with in-stock attachment systems.

If any custom heat sinks are required to bring certain components within their manufacturer-designated running temperatures, ATS assumes all tooling charges and sample production costs, including any customized heat sink attachment hardware. In addition, ATS will perform all physical testing at its Thermal Characterization Laboratory, which features advanced open loop and closed loop wind tunnels, temperature and velocity measurement sensors and other analysis instrumentation, to verify the cooling design. All designs and performance reports are provided to customers, who can perform their own thermal analyses and verification studies using the ATS characterization lab and samples of the actual heat sink solutions at no extra cost.

For more information on the Fixed Cost Board Cooling Program, engineers should contact ATS directly or apply via the company’s Website www.qats.com. An ATS engineer will provide an in-depth explanation of the plan prior to any contract arrangement.
