Abstract

This invention allows multiple power devices to be tkmly secured against a heatsink by means of a single spring clip panel. By reducing parts count, this inven- tion drastically improves an assembly's manufacturabiity. Also, the invention circumvents the need for vibration supports and chemical adhesives, which can be messy, unsafe to operators, and environmentally harmful.
