PCB copper to disipate heat | 2 May, 2002

I remember reading a magazine article a few years ago that discused using the copper area of a pcb to transfer heat away from large SMT devices. Does anyone know of this article or something similar that I can obtain. The article covered copper area, using vias, type of pcb laminate etc. Thanks in advance

Can�t help you with the article that you read. Other places to start are: * 2221, 7.2 Heat Dissipation Considerations, 7.3 Heat Transfer Techniques, and 8.1.10 Heat Dissipation * 2222, 9.1.2 Thermal Relief In Conductor Planes
