LTM2881HY-3#PBF with installing a heat sink?

Category: Hardware
Product Number: LTM2881HY-3#PBF

Is there any problem with installing a heat sink?

  • Hi, 

    Good thermal conductors are very often good electrical conductors. Affixing an electrical conductor to the isolator's package will compromise the isolation characteristics. Its not advisable if safety isolation is required.

    The majority of heat will be conducted out of the LTM2881 package through the GND and GND2 pins. If greater cooling is needed, that may be best accomplished with the PCB layout. 

    Regards,
