Ventec's Thermal Management Material Driving Today's Automotive Lighting Technology


Reading time ( words)

Ventec International Group, a world leader in the production of insulated metal substrates, thermally conductive, polyimide & high reliability laminates and prepregs, will be exhibiting its latest thermally conductive material innovations at the Ford Advanced Lighting Innovation Expo (ALIE) on October 3-4, 2017 in Dearborn, Michigan. On booth #7 of the Ford Product Research Development Center (PDC), Ventec will present its next generation best-in-class, high Tg thin-core and prepreg material and B-series insulated metal backed substrates designed for today's most thermally demanding PCB applications.

Ventec will be introducing VT-5A2 at the expo, which sets itself apart by offering highest performance thermal conductivity 8 times that of FR4 at 2.2 W/m.K, a high Tg of 190°C, best in class thermal performance (T260 >60 Minutes, T288 >30 Minutes and T300 >15 Minutes) and MOT of 150°C. VT-5A2 is lead-free assembly compatible, fulfils RoHS and WEEE requirements and complies with UL94 V0. This material has been developed for a range of thermally demanding automotive applications.

Automotive manufacturers around the world, including Ford, Tesla, VAG, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Volkswagen, Tata, Bentley, Daimler Benz, BMW, Renault-Nissan, Jaguar/Land Rover, Maclaren Automotive, already rely on Ventec's thermal management materials for a range of applications including LED headlights, ECU, break energy reclamation & e-power train establishing Ventec as a global leader in technology for high performance thermal management materials.

Ventec's state-of-the-art IMS production facility has fully automated 100% inline hi pot testing, guaranteeing the integrity of the performance-critical ultrathin dielectric layer. With industry leading production capacity of >3 million IMS panels per annum, of which the VT-4B series alone is 1.9 million panels per year, and with a 50% capacity increase planned in 2018, Ventec is well placed to meet the forecast growth in demand from the automotive and other sectors, with leading edge technology and quality.

With unrivalled lead-times as short as 3 days ex works Suzhou, and a global network of service and distribution centers, Ventec is well placed to support QTA prototyping & pre-production, through to series production in all regions with a fully controlled and managed global supply chain, sales- and technical support-network.

Ventec's thermally conductive materials are manufactured using strict quality controlled processes that are certified to ISO/TS16949, ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100.

"Our industry-leading advanced thermal management materials provide us with a clear competitive advantage in the automotive market," says Jack Pattie, President Ventec International (USA). "We are looking forward to Ford ALIE 2017 and are confident that with our thermal management solutions along with expert advice from our team, visitors to the expo will discover that Ventec offers the most suitable product for their particular application."

Dissecting the IPC Regional Survey on PCB Technology Trends

07/15/2019 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Sharon Starr, Denny Fritz, and Mike Carano talk about the global 2018 IPC Technology Trends Report released early this year—the size of the survey, how it was conducted, the general findings, and regional differences. They also shared their takeaways and regional insights, and the industry outlook over the next five to 10 years.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.

Kelvin Characterization to Accurately Predict Copper Thickness

07/01/2019 | Article by Brandon Sherrieb, Integrated Test Corporation
A few years ago at Integrated Test Corporation, we found that the reaction plan for void fallout at electrical test was ineffective and not standardized. Like many PCB manufacturing facilities (including a Sanmina shop that I used to work at), the reaction plan consisted of cross section analysis to determine the void type.
