The IC3603A200 is a heat sink created by General Electric for the Mark I and Mark II. A heat sink is a passive heat exchanger that transfers the heat generated by an electronic or mechanical device to a fluid medium, often air or liquid coolant, where it is dissipated away from the device, thereby allowing the regulation of the device’s temperature at optimal levels. The IC3603A200 is an important part of equipment because the circuit board in the system will suffer if they become too hot. Soldering will come undone, components will no longer perform properly, this can cause the whole system to crash. With a heat sink, however, that is avoided. The IC3603A200 has ten flat head screw points. Behind the ten screw points is a small circuit board which has three large striped resistors and three small striped resistors. The large resistors two are black in color and the other is red, while all three small resistors are black in color. These resistors help slow down energy flow through the circuit board and the heat sink. The circuit board also has two large capacitors one yellow and one black. These capacitors while holding any additional energy in an electrical field they create.
