I don't think it needs to be a specific part and I'd just get whatever is convenient / available from a supplier of choice. Provided it's thermal tape and not just simple double-sided sellotape, you should be fine.

Of course, some will be better than others and I expect there will be fancy stuff with silver particles or similar that has better thermal performance than the original supplied tape, albeit at a premium.

Regards,

Andrew

The tape provided with the board is Chomerics T411. Another very good option is 3M #8810
