Title: Burst resistant thin wall heat sink

Abstract

An apparatus for cooling an electronic component has a planar top member of a thermal energy conductive material and a parallel planar bottom member of the material, the planar bottom member including a surface having regions configured for heat exchange contact with the electronic component. The planar top member has a plurality of stamped indent formations at a plurality of locations, each indent formation providing a contact surface such that the planar top member is affixed to the bottom member by braze or solder at each contact surface. Alternatively, the planar bottom member also has a plurality of stamped indent formations in alignment with indent formations of the top member. The planar top member is affixed to the bottom member by brazing or soldering each respective contact surface of an indent formation of the planar top member to an opposing contact surface of a corresponding indent formation of the parallel planar bottom member.
