    Thermal Conductive Adhesive Glue?

    i see "thermal conductive paste" on ebay, but i suspect that's just heatsink compound. https://www.ebay.com/itm/173453941960 i need high mechanical strength. thx!

    Numbers of cooling fan for a heatsink?

    I am trying to figure out if I need only one fan for my heatsink or more? I asking cause the fan that I have selected do not cover the entire heatsink area. Does it means that I need to have more fans in order to maximize the cooling from the heatsink? In that case, if my fan needs to have a...

    Temperature with heatsinkcalculator software

    Hello :happy:, I have in the recent days tried to simulate the temperatures levels in a charger (AC/DC-module) in a Heatsinkcalculator software: https://www.heatsinkcalculator.com/version-2-1/demo-calculator.html Based on the power losses calculations for half-bridge, where we have two MOSFETs...

    Fanless design or not?

    This is a recurring problem for me. Do I need to use forced air cooling with fans or not? And although I always have this situation, I can never decide what to do, or to put it better I don't know how, on which criteria, should I decide about this. What my designs usually have is a power hungry...

    2N3055 and heat

    I have a 52V transformer that after rect. produces 3.3A at 52V. I wish to use either a LM317 or a LM338 with 2N3055 power transistors. If you run 2N3055's in parallel you are suppose d to have a resistor like a 0.1Ohm 10W from each emitter so that thermal runaway doesn't take place.Surely the...
