In order to use the AKD-N12 continuously with full load, it is needed to ensure a Rthgesamt ≤ 0,2 K/W for the complete system ([1]). The AKD-N without heat sink provides an Rth of 0,05 K/W. Therefor an additional Rth ≤ 0.15 K/W needs to be ensured in order to provide a sufficient heat dissipation. This can be achieved by using a water cooled heat sink.
