New HeatSink

Monday, October 26th, 2009

This Project Actually Completed January 2009

This is a revision of the aluminum heat sink we have been using for the the 3 watt tricolor LED control boards.  These will serve as generic tricolor led drop in modules for future art pieces.   The control board has 3 FET control channels 1 for each color and a microcontroller, for the brains.  On the top sits the LED nestled in its heat sink to keep it cool.  The whole assembly in its present incarnation looks like this.
