By providing a retaining surface, upon which a solid state device is positioned, and a device securing means movable into and out of compression engagement with a portion of the solid state device, for securely mounting and retaining the device in sandwiched interengagement between the securing means and the retaining surface, a unique solid state device mounting assembly is achieved which eliminates fastening means extending through the solid state device for secure mounting thereof. In addition, the assembly incorporates heat dissipating means cooperatingly associated with the retaining surface for absorbing and dissipating heat generated by the solid state device. In the preferred embodiment, an elongated unitary one-piece bracket member is employed for securely mounting a plurality of solid state devices in the single bracket member, with the bracket member being mountable to a heat dissipating surface.
