ATS presents active and passive heat sinks to cool Freescale dual-core processors

ORLANDO, Fla., and NORWOOD, Mass., 28 July 2006. Advanced Thermal Solutions Inc. (ATS), an engineering and manufacturing company focused on the thermal management of electronics, has introduced two new heat sink solutions for cooling Freescale Semiconductor's MPC8641D Dual-Core PowerPC Processors, after more than a year of design and testing. ATS is demonstrating the two new cooling solutions, as well as its maxiGRIP technology, at the Freescale Technology Forum.

ATS is demonstrating the two new cooling solutions, as well as its maxiGRIP technology, at the Freescale Technology Forum.

The ATS-405 "Juneau" active heat sink includes an integral fan for optimum cooling performance. The ATS-474 "Anchorage" passive heat sink incorporates ATS' maxiFLOW angled fin technology and is specially designed to provide high levels of cooling in low airflow conditions.

Both heat sinks provide cooling for Freescale MPC8641D processors in enclosures such as ATX cabinets, blade servers, and 1U to 4U rack-mount chassis.

The ATS-405 "Juneau" active heat sink includes an integral fan to enhance cooling performance where minimum airflow is available. The fan blows air through a linear field of flat aluminum fins on the heat sink.

The ATS-474 "Anchorage" passive heat sink was developed to cool Freescale MPC8641D processors in restricted height enclosures, such as 2U racks, where airflow is limited. The "Anchorage" heat sink features 26 various sized, spaced, and angled fins to maximize exposure to available air.

These two heat sinks are part of Advanced Thermal Solutions' "Alaska" line of heat sink solutions for Freescale applications.
