When it comes to electronic systems, heat sinks act as heat exchangers that help to cool a device by transferring heat on to the medium surrounding it. They are also used in computers to cool the CPU, also known as the Central processing unit. This technology used is LEDs, also known as Light emitting diodes. Normally, they are used for any device with an insufficient capability of dissipating heat.
Heat sinks are created to maximize the surface area of the device and increase the contact of the cooling medium that surrounds it. It is used in many devices nowadays and works excellently with LEDs compared to other techniques.
One can also find straight fin heat sinks, but Pin Fin works better than them as the fluid flows along the pins axially instead of flowing tangentially. The main advantage is that they perform in a better manner when they are placed in a tilted position. When compared to others, they show a better performance as well. They are perfect for spotlights that are adjustable and they can also be used for shop lighting and downlighting.
Aluminum possesses a high level of thermal conductivity and it ensures a uniform and rapid distribution of heat at the pin's base. Pin fin heat sinks made using aluminum perform better than others, though aluminum is actually lightweight. It exhibits better and uniform heat dissipation than the others. They have been proven to dissipate even heat when compared to other heat sinks. LED Heat Sinks can work on any electronic device, but they are excellent when they are used with LEDs.
