Surface mount heat sinks
I am building a DC PWM board.
I am designing my own board on diptrace that I intend to etch myself. and would like to use surface mount components.
I need to use an 8 ampsurface mount diode ( http://docs-europe.electrocomponents.com/webdocs/0af5/0900766b80af50a6.pdf)
I understand that i will need to use a heatsink but i do not now how to do this with surface mount devices.
Can any one explain how this is done?
