Malico Inc. Introduces Revolutionary Products for BGA Thermal Solutions

Malico Inc. is introducing a series of Talon Clip® to be used with its high performance BGA heat sinks.  Talon Clip® is smartly designed to utilize the space between BGA package and its solder balls.  Two small lip features on the clip hook under two sides of BGA body providing secure and reliable attachment for heat sinks.  In addition to replace unreliable thermal tape, Talon Clip® allows engineers to use heat sinks with phase change TIMs which have much better thermal performance than tapes.  Talon Clip® is engineered to provide just enough pressure to obtain best performance from phase change TIM.  The combination of unique cold forged heat sink, the best TIM and Talon Clip®, Malico Inc. brings you the best thermal solution for your BGA.

Talon Clip® is available for most BGA footprint sizes in the market, ranging from 15x15mm to 45x45mm. It’s made of plastic material, so there is no concern of short circuiting when using the clip.

Furthermore, Malico Inc. has developed varieties of heat sinks to use with Talon Clip®.  The most recently announced hybrid forged heat sink can have up to 200% more surface area compared to extrusion heat sinks.  The elliptical fin forged heat sinks reduce airflow resistance and work effectively in good airflow (>200 LFM) condition.  Forged pin fin heat sinks are best used in omnidirectional airflow condition.  Engineers can simply choose a Malico heat sink with performance needed and match a clip for their application.
