NEW PRODUCT – Aluminum SMT Heat Sinks 10 Pack – 0.25″x0.25″ x 0.15″ tall
NEW PRODUCT – Aluminum SMT Heat Sinks 10 Pack – 0.25″x0.25″ x 0.15″ tall – If you want to heat sink a SoC, motor driver, linear regulator, FET or other surface-mount package part, you might find yourself struggling to find a good heat sink. These little extra-small mini heat sinks are easy to use and give you an extra thermal boost. They’re also a great deal, you get a pack of 10 in each order!
The heat sink is a 0.25″ x 0.25″ (6.5mm x 6.5mm) square with 9 little ‘fins’ sticking out the top. The total height is 0.15″ (3.65mm) so it will fit in any case or enclosure. They even come with a bit of thermal tape already on the bottom! Ideal for medium flat BGAs, TSSOPs, QFNs, etc!
We do not have a datasheet for these heat sinks, but we believe the thermal resistance is approximately 90ºC/W

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
