About superGRIPTM
ATS' superGRIP™ is a new two-component, attachment system which quickly and securely mounts
heat sinks to a wide range of hot running Ball Grid Array (BGA) components, while using a minimal
amount of space on the PCB and eliminating the need to drill holes.
The two-part superGRIPTM system features a plastic frame clip that fastens 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 superGRIPTM assembly applies steady,
even pressure to the component throughout the product lifecycle, improving thermal performance and
long-term reliability.
With this latest edition, ATS now offers two tiers of heat sink
clip attachment: maxiGRIPTM, for general purpose and high
performance applications: and superGRIPTM, for high performance
applications with densely populated PCBs and little space around
the component for mechanical attachment.
ATS’ superGRIPTM heat sink attachment system permits the use of
high performance phase changing thermal interface materials that improve heat transfer by as much
as 20 times more than typical double-sided adhesive thermal tapes. It also allows for the heat sink to
be detached and reattached without damaging the component or the PCB, an important feature for
applications where PCB rework and ease of assembly and disassembly are important.
The superGRIPTM system is available with ATS’ maxiFLOWTM family of heat sinks which feature a low
profile, spread fin architecture to maximize surface area for more effective convection (air) cooling.
Testing at an air flow rate of just 0.5 m/s (100 ft/m) shows that device junction temperatures (Tj)
can be reduced by more than 20 percent below the temperatures achieved using heat sinks with
traditional fin styles.
It is also available with ATS’ straight fin and cross cut heat sinks, as well as additional sizes and
configurations, as custom options.
superGRIPTM FEATURES:
»
Minimal Keep Out Area
Requires minimal space
around the component’s
perimeter; ideal for densely
populated PCBs
» Improves Performance
superGRIP’s strong, uni-
form attachment force helps
achieve maximum perfor-
mance from phase changing
thermal interface materials
» Easy Installation and Removal
Allows heat sink to detached
and reattached without dam-
aging the PCB.
» Thermal Interface Material
Comes standard with clean-
break, reworkable, Chomerics
T-766 phase change material
» Frame Clip
Made from plastic resins
that allow it to be thin, yet
incredibly strong
» Spring Clip
Flat, twin-channel clip, made
from 300 series stainless
steel, provides strong
retention forces
» No Special Tools Needed
Frame and spring clips can
both be installed by hand or
with common hand tools such
as a flat blade screwdriver
» maxiFLOWTM Heat Sink
Available with maxiFLOWTM
heat sinks which maximize
surface area for more
effective convection (air)
cooling
» Custom Options
Clips and heat sink can be
customized in different sizes

superGRIPTM FEATURES:
Provides tight, secure heat sink
attachment in shock and vibration
environments
superGRIP’s strong, uniform
attachment force helps achieve
maximum performance from high
performance phase-changing thermal
interface materials
Allows the heat sink to be detached
and reattached without damaging the
component or the PCB, an important
feature in the event a PCB may need
to be reworked
Comes standard with clean break,
reworkable, Chomerics T-766 phase
change material
FRAME CLIP:
Thin, yet strong plastic Frame Clip
occupies minimal area around chip,
allowing its use in densely populated
PCBs
No custom installation tooling
required– mounts easily by hand.
Interior frame profile locks securely
around bottom edge and sides of
component package
Integral horseshoe tabs in clip lock in
Spring Clip edges for tight, movement-
free heat sink retention
Frame Clip is easily and safely
removed with a common hand tool
SPRING CLIP:
Metal spring clip, placed through the
heat sink’s fin field, locks securely to
both ends to the plastic frame and
applies steady, even pressure to
the component, improving thermal
performance and long-term reliability
Spring Clip design is quickly installed
or released using a common hand
tool, such as a flat blade screwdriver
Flat, twin-channel clip provides
stronger retention forces and
minimizes spring clip movement
