Aavid, Thermal Division of Boyd Corporation Max Clips eliminate the thermal inefficiency associated with using loose hardware to attach components to a heat sink. Aavid Max Clips are thermal solutions for discrete power semiconductors. Max Clips offer a quick, robust attachment method that increases cost-effectiveness, performance, and design flexibility. Max Clips apply consistent optimum pressure at the center of the semiconductor, improving contact with the heat sink. Max Clips maintain a constant assembly force even when interface material deteriorates over time.

Provides mounting for discrete power devices with or without mounting holes
Eliminates the need for drilled or tapped holes in heat sinks
Allows flexibility for moving or changing devices
Provides consistent mounting force for reduced thermal resistivity
Cost-effective compared to screws, nuts, and other conventional hardware
