Heatsinks are a thermal conductor, often referred to as a heat-exchanger, designed to absorb and dissipate the heat created by electronic,
electrical and mechanical devices. Heatsinks use convection, conduction or
radiation to disperse heat and come in a wide range of styles.
Heatsinks are typically constructed from copper or aluminium as
they are both excellent thermal conductors, copper being the most efficient but
also the most expensive. In operation they will radiate heat through a number
of metal fins which provide a greater surface area for the heat to spread
across and dissipate. Components and devices subject to too much heat can
become irreparably damaged and in the most severe cases overheating can result
in fires, explosions and injury.
