  • Patent number: 4027206
    Abstract: Electronic apparatus employing components generating substantial amounts of heat to be dissipated, and particularly solid state components, is in the form of a subassembly that includes a heat sink comprised of a plate or block of metal having a high coefficient of heat conductivity, such as aluminum, to which one or more solid state components may be secured and which also mounts heat radiating fins. The subassembly is slidably supportable in a holder by means of ribs on the inner surfaces of the walls of the holder cooperating with notches in the sides of the heat sink plate, and the holder may be made of dielectric material to electrically isolate the heat sink from an apparatus housing and from other heat sink plates when two or more heat sinks are supported in a holder. A circuit board carrying circuitry associated with the solid state components may be secured directly to one or more of the heat sink subassemblies.

  • Patent number: 3971877
    Abstract: Open cell, air permeable filtering material is attached adjacent the air inlet passage of an electronic circuit chassis by means of a fastener including a plurality of extending barbed members which are semiresilient, the barbs of said fasteners attaching directly to the cells of said filter in response to the application of pressure therebetween, said barbs resiliently yielding to permit removal of said filter from said chassis.
