Question
Dear Kevin

Is it possible to design compact Heatsinks for the electronic components?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hi Prashant,

One trick component system designers use is to install a small fan.
Then finned heat disipation devices that are very compact can be used.
Otherwise heat disipation devices can be found on line or in component catalogues.
These can be copied and no doubt they can be improved.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
Kevin.
