Metal Core Printed Circuit Boards

metal core printed circuit board

Today's advanced electronics require higher power levels and larger heat removal from denser chip packaging. New microelectronics is packaging more density than ever into a smaller package, resulting in higher heat densities and creating new heat related problems. Metal core high thermal conductivity chip packaging advances allow higher output designs to run cooler.

San Francisco Circuits will provide you with different types of Metal Core PCBs:

  • Single sided thermal prepreg on metal for power supplies and LED applications for heat removal only.
  • Double sided boards where the core is metal for either thermal conductance and or CTE requirements.
  • Multilayer boards with a metal core in the center for CTE and for thermal considerations.
  • Multiple metal cores in multilayer for tighter CTE control.
  • Thermal plane technology for higher density and higher thermal dissipation metal core boards.
