App note from NXP Semiconductors about multilayer PCB as additional heatsink for flat SMD components mostly power transistors to dissipate heat. Link here (PDF)

This application note illustrates how to improve the power dissipation of discrete components by using multilayer PCBs. It focuses on the impact of using larger copper areas to improve the thermal behavior of applications.
