A10 Lime Heatsink newbee question
« on: January 09, 2014, 07:55:00 PM »
Hello,

I want to use A10 Lime to decode video and i have to buy this Heatsink :
https://www.olimex.com/Products/Components/Misc/ALUMINIUM-HEATSINK-20x20x6MM/

My question is how to fix the Heatsink ? Does this Heatsink have some sort of thermal paste that can strongly glue it on the board ?

If not, what should i buy for fixing strongly the Heatsink ?

Thanks in advance, Olivier.

this heatsilk is self adhesive to the chip, so all you have to do is to remove the protective film and to press it gently to the BGA chip
