Santa Clara, CA, April 14, 2009
– Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc, a leading electronics thermal management solutions and service provider, today announced it has developed heat sink solutions specifically for the OCTEON II Processors from Cavium Networks (NASDAQ: CAVM). ATS products, for use with the new processors, include maxiFLOW™ heat sinks as well as, maxiGRIP™ and superGRIP™ heat sink clip attachment systems.
As a Cavium PACE (Partnership to Accelerate Customer End-solutions) member, ATS offers comprehensive thermal management analysis and design services for telecommunications, networking and embedded computing hardware providers. ATS is committed to help bring high performance electronic products, which use Cavium’s OCTEON II Processors, to market faster, reliably and with lower development costs.
“Many of ATS’ customers utilize Cavium Networks components because they enable them to design products with outstanding performance at minimum cost,” said Dr. Kaveh Azar, President and CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. “Similarly, ATS, through its partnership with Cavium, will continue to support customers utilizing OCTEON II Processors, by developing cooling and mechanical attachment solutions such as maxiFLOW heat sinks and maxiGRIP and superGRIP heat sink clips, with high performance at tremendous value.”
“Advanced Thermal Solutions has been a strong and expert partner, developing innovative electronics thermal management solutions for customers using Cavium processors,” said Tasha Castañeda, Senior Strategic Alliance Manager of Cavium Networks. “ATS is an industry-leader in developing cooling products which will enable our customers to accelerate the design and development of their specific applications.”
ATS’ maxiFLOW family of heat sinks feature a low profile, spread fin architecture to maximize surface area for more effective convection (air) cooling. The maxiGRIP and superGRIP families of heat sink clip attachment feature plastic frame clips that fasten securely around the perimeter of a component and a metal spring clip which slips through the heat sink’s fin field and locks securely to both ends to the plastic frame. The resulting assembly applies steady, even pressure to the component throughout the product lifecycle, improving thermal performance and long-term reliability.
