Metal core PCBs
Metal core or IMS (Insulated Metallic Substrate) circuit boards are an excellent
alternative to standard circuit boards, if the circuit boards are exposed to large
mechanical loads, or a high level of dimensional stability is required, or high
temperatures must be conducted away from power components or LEDs.
The thermal conductivity assisted by the aluminium core in the circuit boards enables
higher packing density, more stable operating parameters, higher operational safety and
a reduced failure rate. Ideal e.g. for laser diodes!
The integration of the cooling unit in the printed circuit board also results in space
Additional application areas for this technology include: high current application,
power LED’s, SMD and power circuit boards. The high thermal conductivity and small
insulation thickness (standard: 100µm) permits a quick and effective transfer of the
