Default Re: Microboost question, well general driver question

Okay everybody heres another question!

I have a flexdrive, that I was trying to get off of a coin that I thermally adhered it to with some arctic silver.

in getting it off, the top "lid" to the 6 pin chip, was left sticking to the coin. Now it has exposed copper looking stuff, and I don't know if it's okay to use it still

Would it kill diodes? could i re-thermally adhere it to something?

Default Re: Microboost question, well general driver question

hey jake, I was wondering how'd you get a microboost to hit 1.3A??? I thought those were limited to about 1.1A max... whats the solder brigde configuration to hit such high currents. I just got 2 microboosts and was gonna run them in parallel at 700mA each, but if 1 can hit 1.3A then i got more lasers i can build!

Default Re: Microboost question, well general driver question

most of the chips are mounted upside-down. Chances are, that's just the heat-spreader and the chip is under it. Look at the part stuck to the coin. If it looks like it has a silver block imbedded in it, then you're screwed. If all you see is the imprint of that metal heat spreader, then it *might* still work.

If it still works, theoretically you could get better heat transfer from the chip die to a heatsink. Keep in mind, though, that the copper exposed metal is most likely not flaoting, but connected to ground.
