Rogers to Showcase Specialty Materials at APEC 2019


Reading time ( words)

Rogers Corporation will be showing its specialty materials for power electronics applications which includes  its range of laminated busbar solutions (and capacitor-busbar assemblies), curamik substrates, 92ML thermally conductive PCB materials, ARLON Secure Thermal Transfer Adhesive, and HeatSORB phase change material at the upcoming APEC 2019 conference and exhibition.

APEC, the annual Allied Power Electronics Conference, will be held from March 18 through March 20 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. Rogers Corporation will be exhibiting at booth #820.

Visitors to Rogers’ booth will have the chance to learn more about the range of ROLINX laminated and powder coated busbar solutions as well as ROLINX CapLinkcapacitor-busbar assemblies and their outstanding high current and low inductance capability solutions.

ROLINX laminated busbars offer low inductance, compactness, a customized design and, in combination with capacitors, extremely low inductance and high power density capabilities. These enhanced busbar assemblies enable smaller, lighter electronic designs with higher current handling capabilities in support of a wide range of applications, from automotive electronics to solar-powered and wind-powered systems.

Visitors to the Rogers booth can also learn more about curamik substrates designed for high-demand applications. The basis of the substrate is a ceramic isolator to which pure copper is applied. The result is ceramic substrates with high heat conductivity, great heat capacity and heat spreading provided by the thick copper layer. These high performance substrates are well-suited for power electronics applications.

In addition, Rogers will be showcasing the 92ML Series thermally conductive PCB materials.  These materials, which are available as copper clad laminates, IMS, and prepreg, effectively reduce the operating temperature of PCB-mounted power ICs for improved reliability and optimized performance using no additional materials, saving designers weight and space. The thermal conductivity of the 92ML materials is 2 W/(m.K) in the z-axis and 3.5 W/(m.K) in-plane. The materials feature outstanding mechanical and thermal reliability, with Tg of 160⁰C paired with low z-axis CTE of 22 ppm/⁰C, as well as UL MOT of 150⁰C.  Designing with the 92ML Series PCB materials will help keep circuits cool.

ARLON Secure Thermal Transfer Adhesive, a structural adhesive with exceptional thermal, physical, and electrical properties, will be showcased as well. Ideal for use in applications such as power modules, ARLON Secure thermally conductive adhesive is the solution of choice when long-term reliability is a top concern.

Visitors can also learn how HeatSORB, a proprietary phase change material (patent pending) addresses thermal management issues by capturing heat and delaying temperature ramps, allowing devices to remain cooler longer.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

04/16/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.

Top Five Takeaways from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/15/2021 | Chris Mitchell, IPC VP, Global Government Relations
IPC APEX EXPO 2021, which went all virtual this year, exemplified how the electronics industry has responded to the COVID-19 global pandemic: with resiliency, agility, and an unwavering commitment to build electronics better. APEX EXPO featured great content and robust discussions on topics of critical importance to the global electronics industry. From my vantage point leading IPC’s government relations programs, here are my top five takeaways from this year’s event.

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
