maxiGRIP™ and superGRIP™ clipKITs™

ATS' clipKIT offers patented superGRIP and maxiGRIP technology available for straight fin, slant fin, cross cut, and pin fin heat sinks

Image of Advanced Thermal Solutions' MaxiGRIP and SuperGRIP ClipKITSFollowing the success of the widely used maxiGRIP and superGRIP heat sink attachment systems, ATS introduces clipKIT.  This allows the same patented frame and spring clip technology to be used with straight fin, cross cut, pin fin, and slant fin heat sinks, which have a base thickness of 1.75 mm to 4 mm. Instead of relying on thermal tape or epoxy, which can damage the board or component during rework, the reliable clip attachment system provides a secure hold without the risk of damaging the component or PCB, saving time and cost. The ultra-thin plastic frame clip and stainless steel spring clip are corrosion-resistant, flame retardant and pass Telecordia shock and vibration standards.  This ensures the heat sink will securely stay in place on the component in harsh conditions. clipKIT attachments eliminate the need to drill holes in a PCB, saving additional board and rework costs. The thin frame clip occupies minimal space around the components perimeter, compared to push pin attachments or stand-off hardware which leaves little space on already overcrowded PCBs. The two-part attachment system provides a uniform force which enhancing heat transfer and improves TIM performance by up to 20%. clipKIT is available for 15 mm to 45 mm component packages.
