Aismalibar North America to Increase Production of FASTHERM


Reading time ( words)

Aismalibar has announced that they will increase production capacity of their FASTHERM product by 42% in 2018 due to demand from the automotive industry. FASTHERM was developed by Aismalibar to achieve a faster thermal transition from the LED thermal pad to the heat sink. This superior thermal transition can be achieved by using the entire COBRITHERM HTC product range with either a copper or copper-aluminium base. By using Aismalibar COBRITHERM HTC range together with Fastherm technology, LEDs operate at a temperature 30ºC to 50ºC lower due to the direct thermal transition from the thermal pad to the heat sink.

Jeff Brandman, president of Aismalibar North America, remarks, “We’re very excited to continue to work closely with several OEMs within automotive lighting product development.  We’re very encouraged since the introduction of FASTHERM to the industry in a short time we have received production specification from OEMs with many new project on the horizon.”

About Aismalibar

AISMALIBAR was one of the first IMS laminate manufacturers in the world and was the first in Europe. Aismalibar is a manufacturer of copper clad laminates who produces high quality base materials for the PCB industry. Our products provide superior thermal management through high thermal conductivity, low thermal impedance and high dielectric capacity.  AISMALIBAR was one of the first IMS laminate manufacturers in the world and was the first in Europe. AISMALIBAR is proud to introduce their material to the North American market in 2012. Their product IMS Cobritherm ® is a qualified and recognized Insulated Metal Substrate which gives the best thermal management solutions with high thermal conductivity, low thermal impedance and high dielectric capacity. AISMALIBAR has implement a 100% proof test with 1-3KV (High Pot Test) to all IMS laminates coming out of their plant. This is the only way to insure the dialectical strength is perfect and that production problems are detected before PCBs arrive to the end user.

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

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
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.

PCB Reliability: Via Design

07/12/2019 | Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly
When considering the long-term reliability of a PCB, you must take into account any vias on your board. While an invaluable and essential part of board design, vias introduce weaknesses and affect solderability. This article will discuss vias, the potential concerns that are introduced into your board through their implementation, and how to minimize those concerns to acceptable levels.
