Aluminum Metal Core PCB
Aluminum Metal Core Printed Circuit Boards Services
Among all Metal core PCBs have the important ability to provide effective thermal dissipation for electronic products, Aluminum PCBs is the most common type – the base material consists of aluminum core with standard FR4. It features a thermal clad layer that dissipates heat in a highly efficient manner, while cooling components and increasing the overall performance of the products.
Every rigid and flexible printed circuit board (PCB) design is different, customized to meet the board’s purpose. The same is true for the PCB base material — fiberglass is a popular base material, but aluminum-based PCBs are also very effective in many applications. Aluminum PCBs consist of a metal-based, copper-clad laminate that delivers high performance, including excellent thermal conductivity and electrical insulation.
MOKO is a leading provider of a wide range of printed circuit boards, including metal-base or metal core aluminum PCB’s for the automotive, aerospace, consumer products and medical industries. Here’s our take on the uses and benefits of aluminum-based PCBs. Get Pricing and Lead Time
An aluminum PCB is a metal-based board and its structure is divided into three layers:
Aluminum printed circuit boards are also known as metal base PCBs, and are comprised of metal-based laminates covered by copper foil circuit layers. They are made of alloy plates that are a combination of aluminum, magnesium and silumin (Al-Mg-Si). Aluminum PCBs deliver excellent electrical insulation, good thermal potential, and high machining performance, and they differ from other PCBs in several important ways.
The base layer consists of an aluminum alloy substrate. The use of aluminum makes this type of PCB an excellent choice for through-hole technology, discussed later in this article.
The thermal insulation layer is a critically important component of the PCB. It contains a ceramic polymer that has excellent viscoelastic properties, great thermal resistance, and defends the PCB against thermal and mechanical stresses.
The circuit layer contains the copper foil mentioned previously. Generally, PCB manufacturers use copper foils ranging from one to 10 ounces.
The dielectric layer of insulation absorbs heat as current flows through the circuits. This is transferred it to the aluminum layer, where the heat is dispersed.
Achieving the highest light output possible results in increased heat. PCBs with improved thermal resistance extend the life of your finished product. A qualified manufacturer will provide you with superior protection, heat mitigation and part reliability. At MOKO, we hold ourselves to the exceptionally high standards your projects require.
