Claims. (Cl. 165-80) This invention relates to heat dissipator apparatuses for transistors and other heat generating electronic components. In particular, this invention relates to a highly efficient heat dissipator apparatus of multi-segment tubular construction, the respective segments being especially adaptable for quick and simple assembly, disassembly, and re-assembly as required for manufacture and under actual use conditions.

Heat dissipator apparatuses of generally tubular shape are very commonly employed in electronic circuits. These tubular shaped apparatuses invariably include a plurality of heat dissipator ribs or fins that are in a heat conductive relationship with the main tubular body, said ribs or fins being disposed either at the interior or at the exterior of the tubular structure. Tubular shaped heat dissipator apparatuses may be readily employed either as a so-called natural convection unit (in which case the apparatus is vertically arranged in chimney-like fashion) or as a socalled forced air unit (in which case a powered fan is used to cool the heat dissipator ribs). In either case, the tubular heat dissipator apparatus is, of course, firmly bolted or otherwise attached Within the electronic circuit package.

Within the past several years, the segmentized tubular heat dissipator apparatus has become quite popular in the electronics industry. Each segment of the segmentized tubular structure commonly comprises a web that provides an arcuate or chordal peripheral portion of the tube. One of the web sides, usually the interior side, is provided with a plurality of heat dissipator ribs; another of the web sides, usually the exterior side, is provided with a support member or station adapted to carry a transistor or other heat-generating electronic component. Ordinarily the peripheral web, the heat dissipator ribs, and the support member are provided of a structurally-continuous uniphase material e.g. extruded aluminum, so that the necessarily continuous heat-conductive path exists among the three components of each segment. Because the several segments of the tubular heat dissipator apparatus are commonly of electrically-conductive metal, and because it is necessary to electrically isolate every electronic component mounted on the respective support members, it is accordingly appropriate that the respective segments be attached together in an electrically-insulated relationship. The multi-segment tubular heat sinks of the prior art are exceedingly complex to assemble because of the cumbersome paraphernalia necessary to electrically isolate the respective segments.

There are, of course, a multitude of kinds and sizes of heat generating electronic components, and accordingly, any one of a multitude members might be required within any given tubular heat sink. Thus, if a heat generating component of an original electronic circuit is to be later replaced with a different type of heat generating component, then it is commonly necessary to disassemble the tubular heat sink so as to replace one of the original segments with another having a more appropriate support member. With the prior art devices it is necessary to remove the entire tubular heat sink from the circuit package to replace one of segments with a difierent type segment, and this operation is not permissible, or is at least very impractical, in many situations.

It is accordingly an object of the present invention to provide a multi-segment tubular heat sink that is exceedingly simple to assemble in such form that the respect1ve segments are electrically-insulated, one from the other.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a multi-se-grnent tubular heat sink wherein one or more of the segments may be substituted by alternate configuration segments without the necessity for removing the entire heat dissipator apparatus from the electrical circult package.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a new and efiicient design for the heat dissipator ribs of the tubular heat sink.

It is yet another object of the present invention to provide a segmentized cooling device which may be tailored to a wide range of applications.

These and other objects and advantages are attained by means of novel configurations for the respective segments of the tubular heat sink, including novel rib members, together with a unique yet simple and convenient means for assembling the respective segments together.

The tubular heat dissipator apparatus 10 comprises four distinct web segments 20, 30, 40, and 50, that are interconnected together in a tubular relationship with intersegment electrically-insulative spacer means '60, 70, 80, and to provide a laterally closed structure having two open ends, including a forward end 11 and a rearward end 12. Integrally connected to the multi-seg-ment tubular structure are a pair of electrically-isolated end plates, including a forward plate 15 and a rearward plate 16. Each of the web segments at least partially surrounds longitudinal central axis 13 in arcuate or chordal fashion, said axis 13 being substantially parallel to the respective webs.

One of the sides (preferably the interior side) of the rnulti-segment laterally enclosed conduit or tube is provided with a plurality of heat dissipator ribs spaced at subratus.

"the several web segments is provided with an integral support member adapted to carry a heat generating electronic component. Because it is necessary that there be an uninterrupted heat-conductive path between the support member, the base web, and the heat dissipator ribs, it is desirable that these three components be integrally provided of a structurally-continuous piece of metal or other heat-conductive metal. Appropriate to this uniphase type of integral construction are metallic extrusions of the types described in the following paragraph.

Arcuate web segment 20 is integrally provided with an external rectangular shelf support member 21 and a plurality of integral ribs that extend radially toward the longitudinal central axis 13 of the segmentized conduit structure 10. Support member 21 is provided with a perforation 22 therethrough to facilitate mounting of a transistor or other heat generating electronic component thereon. Arcuate Web segment 30 is integrally provided with an external stud-type rectangular support member 31 and a plurality of integral ribs that extend toward longitudinal central axis 13. Threaded perforation 32 of support member 31 is radial with respect to axis 13 and extends into stud-type support member 31. Angular or chordal web segment 40 is integrally provided with an external rectangular shelf-type support member 41 having perforation 42 and a plurality of ribs that extend toward central axis 13. Arcuate web segment 50 is integrally provided with an external stud-type rectangular support member 51 and a plurality of ribs that extend toward central axis 13. Perforation 52 of support member 51 is radial with respect to axis 13 and extends into stud-type support member 51. Segments 20, 30, 40 and 50 are each of the same thickness, along central axis 13, between end gaskets 25 and 26.

The respective metallic conduit segments are removably connected together in the required electrically-insulative relationship with novel slidable spacer means located at the juncture between every respective segment. One type of electrically-insulative slidable connector employed is that illustrated in FIGURE 8 and which is employed at the 20-50 and at the 30-40 segment junctures. Spacer 60 at the 30-40 juncture comprises a metallic rigid intermediate plate 61 and a pair of metallic terminal sockets 62 and 63, said terminal sockets being of a flared crosssectional shape and being integrally connected to plate 61. A strip of pressure-sensitive electrically insulative .tape 64 e.g. adhesively coated Teflon is adherently attached over trapezoidal sockets 62 and 63 so as to provide electrically-insulative terminii for spacer 60. Electrically insulated socket 62 is slidably engaged within a mating trapezoidal slot 34 at that end of segment 30 adjacent to segment 40, while electrically-insulative socket 63 is similarly slidably engaged within a mating trapezoidal .slot 43 at that end of segment 40 adjacent to segment 30. Slots 34 and 43, as well as hereinafter described slots 23, 24, 33, 44, 53, and 54, are each parallel to longitudinal central axis 13 and are each coextensive with the frontto-rear thickness of their respective segments. As can best be seen in the FIGURE 2 side elevational view, connector 60 is coextensive with the front-to-rear thickness of adjacent segments 30 and 40 between end gaskets 25 and 26. Connector 70, which is employed at the 20-50 segment junctures, is identical to connector 60 except that the rigid intermediate plate 71 and the terminal sockets 72 and 73 are moldably formed of a hard electrically-insulative resin e.g. phenol-formaldehyde copolymer, and there is accordingly no need for terminal insulator tapes. Socket 72 is slidably engaged within a mating trapezoidal slot 23 at that end of segment 20 adjacent to segment 50, while socket 73 is similarly slidably engaged within -a mating trapezoidal slot 54 at that end of segment 50 adjacent to segment 20.

The preferred type slidable. connector is that illustrated in FIGURE 7 and which is employed at the 20-30 and at the 40-50 segment junctures. Specifically, connector 80 4 comprises a rigid metallic intermediate plate 81 and a pair of metallic terminal sockets 82 and 83, said terminal sockets being integrally connected to plate 81. Sockets 82 and 83 are each provided with a longitudinal groove 85 that is coextensive between the front and rearward surfaces of connector 80. Plate 81 and sockets 82 and 83, together with grooves 85, are preferably extruded from a structurally-continuous metal e.g. aluminum. A strip of pressure-sensitive electrically insulative tape 84 e.g. adhesively coated Teflon is adherently attached over sockets 82 and 83 so as to provide electrically-insulative terminii for spacer-connector 80. Electrically-insulative socket 82 is slidably engaged within a mating slot 24 at the outward or exterior surface of segment 20 near shelf-like support member 21. Electrically-insulated socket 83 is similarly slidably engaged within .a mating slot 33 at the exterior surface of segment 30 near stud-type support member 31. As can best be seen in the FIGURE 1 top plan view, connector 80 is coextensive with the front-to-rear thickness of adjacent segments 20 and 30, and the rigid intermediate plate 81 overlies the spatial gap between segments 20 and 30. Connector 90, which is employed at the 40-50 segment junctures, is identical to connector 80 except that the rigid intermediate plate 91 and the terminal sockets 92 and 93 including longitudinal grooves 95 are moldably formed of a hard electrically-insulative resin, and there is accordingly no need for terminal insulator tapes 84. Socket 92 is slidably engaged within a mating slot 53 at the outward surface of segment 50 near stud type support member 51, while socket 93 is similarly slidably engaged within a mating slot 44 at the outward surface of segment 40 near shelf-like support member 41. As with connector 80, connector is coextensive with the front-to-rear thickness of adjacent segments 40 and 50, and the rigid intermediate plate 91 overlies the spatial gap between segments 40 and 50. Thus, slidable connectors 60, 70, 80, and 90 do maintain the segments 20, 30, 40 and 50 in fixed peripheral positions with respect to longitudinal central axis 13. V

The longitudinal relationship of the several segments are fixably maintained with forward and rearward face plates 15 and 16, respectively, together with a plurality of self-tapping screws 17 threadedly engaged with grooved portions 85 and of connectors 80 and 90. Face plates 15 and 16 are each of a rectangular plate-like nature having a central circular opening that surrounds central axis 13 and that is substantially coextensive with the interior of the multi-segment conduit. As can best be seen in the FIGURES 1 and 2 plan and elevational views, face plates 15 and 16 are of greater breadth than the multi-segment conduit shown in FIGURE 4. Face plates 15 and 16 are provided with lower perforate flanges 15a and 16a, respectively, to facilitate mounting of the tubular heat dissipator apparatus with screws or other removable fasteners into the electrical circuit package. End plates 15 and 16 are normally of metallic structural material for convenience in manufacture, and accordingly to prevent the metallic plates from destroying the intersegments electrical isolation, suitable electrically-insulative gaskets are disposed between the end plates and the multi-segment tubular structure. Specifically a thin annular rubber gasket 25 is disposed against forward end plate 15, and a similar annular gasket 26 is abuttably disposed between rearward end plate 16 and the several segments of the multisegment tubular structure. 7

End plates 15 and 16 are provided with a plurality of perforations that are in registry with grooves 85 and 95 within each of the respective slidable spacer-connectors 80 and 90. Self-tapping screws 17, passing through a perforation, through an annular gasket insulator 25 or 26, and thence into a socket groove 85 or 95 of the slidable connector, hold end plates 15 and 16 within the structure so as to prevent longitudinal slidability of the several segments of the multi-se'gment tube. As screws 17 thread into the sockets, the socket expands against its surrounding groove e.g. 82 within 24. The length of self-tapping screws 17 is less than one-half the longitudinal length of the heat dissipator apparatus (between gaskets 25 and 26) because two of such opposed screws 17 are threadably engaged within a single socket of the slidable connector, one screw entering from either end of each socket. While grooves 85 and 95 have been employed within the sockets, central longitudinal holes would also provide a longitudinal perforation to serve the same purpose; the grooved socket is preferred because this connector embodiment may be formed as an economical extrusion.

Spacer-connectors 60 and 70 could also be provided with grooves or holes for accommodation of fastener means e.g. screws 17, as indicated in phantom line in FIGURE 8. However, not every slidable-connector needs to be attached to an end plate, and so long as at least two diametrically opposed screws are employed, this is sufficient for attachment of the end plates.

As previously mentioned, the apparatus is typically attached within a circuit package with screws (not shown) passing through the perforate end plate flanges a and 16a. Now in order to be able to replace one of the segments -50 inclusive without removing the entire structure 10 from the circuit package, preferably only one of the flanges e.g. 15a, is attached. Then, when it is desired to remove one of the segments and replace it with an other, the opposite end plate e.g. 16, is entirely removed along with its screw fasteners 17. The fastened end plate 15 remains within the circuit package. Then, only those screws 17 holding the appropriate segment to end plate 15 are removed to free the appropriate slidable-connector. After the appropriate segment is removed and replaced with another, its slidable-connector, end plate 16 and screws 17 are re-assembled, followed by re-mounting of end plate flange 16a. Thus a heat sink segment may be readily replaced with another in situ without the necessity for dismounting the whole unit from the circuit package.

From the foregoing, the construction and operation of the heat dissipator apparatus will be readily understood and further explanation is believed to be unnecessary. However, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the appended claims.
