IRVINE, Calif. – RF and microwave components specialist Pasternack Enterprises Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing RF and microwave power amplifier accessories that include heat sinks, heat sinks with cooling fans, power control cable assemblies, and other thermal management components for test and system-level applications.

Pasternack offers eight different heat sink models, some of which are designated for general-purpose usage and others are configured for select power amplifier models.

These heat sinks feature finned extrusion profiles with large baseplate mounting surfaces and AC or DC power supply options for models that support integrated cooling fans.

Heat sinks are devices that enhance heat dissipation from a hot surface and are ideal for thermal management of power amplifiers in test and measurement applications.

A power amplifier will generate elevated levels of heat that must be dissipated properly to protect the internal circuit assembly. Most models include thermal mounting gaskets for optimal thermal flow.

The PE15C5013 and PE15C5013F general-purpose heat sinks are for Pasternack power amplifier models rated at 1 Watt and greater. To support test and measurement applications, Pasternack offers four power control cable assemblies configured for select power amplifier models with D-sub connector interfaces.
