Top 10 Commercial Products Heat Sinks Are Used In

A heat sink is a thermal device that dissipates heat from another object. It transfers heat generated by a mechanical or electronic device to a fluid medium which is normally air or liquid coolant where it is dispersed away from the device.

Heat sinks are used with high-power semiconductor devices where the heat dissipation ability of the component itself is insufficient to moderate its temperature.
