Mounting Hardware helps complete thermal management solutions by ensuring the solutions are firmly mounted in an efficient process.
Shurlock Pins and Solder Anchors with Z-Springs help mount heat sinks to PCB assemblies and provide spring force to ensure good thermal contact with heat sources below. Shurlock Pins lock in place when installed in a PCB through hole. Solder Anchors are installed into the board with heat sinks assembled and a Z-spring can mount and be removed repeatedly without harming the board.
Aavid’s Max Clip™ system used with our Max Clip Extruded Heat Sinks provide excellent centralized mounting from semiconductor packages to the heat sink, reducing thermal resistance and improving thermal performance. Spring clips, like Max Clips, are used in conjunction with extruded and stamped heat sinks to apply pressure into devices and ensure better thermal joints between a heat source and heat sink.
Mounting kits are pre-packaged hardware kits for through hole mounting in heat-sealed plastic bags for use on assembly lines and are ideal for retrofit applications.
Card Ejectors and Card Pullers are designed to assist in the insertion and ejection of PCB boards into ports.
Card Ejectors & Pullers
PCB Card Ejectors, Pullers and Snap-on hardware enable card insertion and extraction. They are damaged less often during extraction from a PCB. Single piece Snap-on PCB Ejectors & Pullers reduce assembly time and complexity. They are excellent for retrofit applications.
Standard Ejectors & Pullers are fabricated from UL-rated nylon and use a lever action to release PCB cards from its connector safety and quickly. No special extraction tool is needed for board removal and roll pins are included.
Max Clips™, designed for use with Max Clip™ Extruded Profiles, apply consistent pressure at the center of the semiconductor, improving thermal contact and performance.
Max Clips maintain a constant mounting force, even as interface material deteriorates or shifts over time, making Max Clips a better long term mounting solution.
