The heat sink or heatsink is a device to transfer heat generated by electronics or mechanical device to air or liquid coolant, simply it dissipates heat away from the device to prevent any damage because of heat and allows temperature regulation of device at an optimal level. Heatsinks are mostly used with high power semiconductor devices which has very high heat dissipation and are unable to moderate its temperature.
