Thermal Management PCB

 

Definition 
Thermal Management PCBs transmit heat away from critical components (or operating areas) to ancillary spaces using one or more of the following: metal heatsinks , metallic cores (e.g, aluminum, Cu), thermally conductive dielectrics (Stabl-Cor, graphene), or heavy copper plane layers.

Applications
Historically, the military had been the largest consumer of thermal management PCBs via PCBs with heatsinks.  However, the burgeoning LED lighting industry has easily eclipsed the military market by incorporating metal core PCBs as a backbone thermal managemeAsk the Expert Alpha Circuitnt technology.

Common Issues
Design Support, heatsink registration, metals machining.
