Aluminum PCB Applications
You can improve the durability and performance of your product by using
aluminum boards. Simple designs and low thermal impedance of the dielectric out
performs all other printed circuit board insulators for power and high-operating
temperature components. The relatively low cost versus copper and the ability to
have a lightweight material with excellent durability are the biggest reasons
aluminum is used for these applications.
Aluminum clad offers a variety of thermal performances, is compatible
with mechanical fasteners, and is highly reliable.
LED Circuit Boards
Using aluminum with your LEB PCB ensures the lowest possible operating
temperatures and maximum brightness, color, and life. With many low-cost options for
dielectric materials and specific manufacturing equipment dedicated to single sided
production of LED lighting products, we can give our customers the best overall
Thermal clad dielectric choices provide the electrical isolation needed
to meet operating parameters and safety agency test requirements.
Solid State Relays
Aluminum offers a very thermally efficient and mechanically robust
substrate to drive heat away from the critical system components.
The automotive industry uses aluminum boards, as they need long term
reliability under high operating temperatures coupled with their requirement of
effective space utilization. Most commonly used in automotive lighting system
Most commonly found in street lighting, traffic control lighting,
interior building lights, landscape lighting, and camping gear as aluminum PCBs are
lightweight and can be very small in size.
