FOR : Demonstration case



> The case represents counter-current Air Flow Through module. The one-fin heat sink is attached underneath of the PCB with PQFP component mounted on it. The assembly is cooled down by forced air streams going in opposite directions. The heat generated by the electronic component is transfered into the streams both by convection and by conduction through the board and heat sink.
