Abstract

Disclosed is a concept of a circular diaphragm spring with attached dual-leg snap features. The attached dual-leg snap features engage in holes in the heat sink. The central circular portion deflects and rests on the substrate, applying the required clamping force (see Figures 1 and 2). The benefit of this invention is an improved method of attaching a heat sink to a base substrate.
