Mouser and Advanced Thermal Solutions Sign Global Distribution Agreement

May 30, 2013 by Jeff Shepard

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) today announced that Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now distributing its high performance heat sinks and cooling solutions . The agreement with ATS means Mouser Electronics customers will have access to a wide range of high performance heat sinks available in thousands of shapes and sizes. ATS heat sinks are designed for use in many applications including telecom, datacom, LED, automotive, medical, and aerospace.

“We are very pleased to present to our customers the world-renowned ATS line of heat sinks,” says Keith Privett, Mouser Electronics Vice President of Electromechanical, Power, and Test. “Our broad product offering will provide customers with cooling solutions for LEDs, BGAs, power supplies, and specific devices such as flip-chip processors.”

ATS maxiFLOWâ„¢ heat sinks feature a low profile spread fin array that maximizes surface area, yielding the highest thermal performance of any heat sink on the market. These heat sinks are available with thermal tape, push pin or its patented maxiGRIPâ„¢ attachment methodology. ATS maxiGRIP assemblies permit secure attachment of heat sinks to BGAs, flip chips and other hot components on a PCB with steady, even pressure and without any need to drill holes in the board. Both the spring and frame clip in the maxiGRIP assembly can be easily removed, allowing the heat sink to be detached and re-attached without damaging the device, surrounding components or PCB.

All ATS maxiGRIP heat sinks are fabricated with high-performance, phase-changing thermal interface material to further maximize performance. Mouser Electronics stocks an extensive line-up of the ATS LED heat sinks, including both the linear style and the round/star shape in a wide variety of sizes; fansinks using maxiGRIP attachment, and a full line of maxiFLOW heat sinks for brick dc-dc converters.

“Amongst many air and liquid high capacity cooling solutions, ATS provides the widest range of high performance heat sinks for cooling today’s hot-running electronic devices,” says Sharon Koss, VP of Operations and Business Development of ATS. “We look forward to providing thermal solutions to Mouser’s customers around the world.”
