Aluminum core PCB – also known as IMS (Insulated Metallic Substrates) – are used at occurring mechanical, but primarily at thermal loads. The core of the PCB is made entirely of aluminum and is separated by an insulation layer from the layouted traces. Compared to FR4 laminates, IMS have a better thermal conductivity, resulting in a more uniform temperature dissipation and thus the effect of passive cooling occurs. By the so avoided occurrence of heat hotspots, both the lifespan and the reliability of the finished assembly will be increased.
These properties of IMS PCB particularly suitable when using power components or high-performance LED technology.
Do you have questions about the range of applications of IMS PCB or do you require technical advice for your individual project? The experienced team of Becker & Müller will be happy to assist you personally aside.
Rigid-flex PCB are used when the PCB in the operation is exposed mechanical movement or vibrations, also if spatial conditions do not allow any other solution.
Becker & Müller is one of the specialized manufacturers of rigid-flex and semi-flex PCB and with this development competence we like to already be available for our customers in the development phase.
High-frequency PCB (HF) are used wherever fast signal flows and thus high transmission frequencies are required. In order to ensure the integrity of the high-frequency signal flows at the highest possible frequency, the permissible parameters must be precisely determined and implemented. We at Becker & Müller are your competent manufacturer and development partner in this regard.
Impedance-controlled PCB are used at high frequencies and steep switching edges to ensure signal integrity. Reflections can cause signals to superimpose, which can lead to errors and unreliability of the entire assembly. Becker & Müller is your specialist for the production of impedance-controlled PCB.
Compared to standard FR4 materials, high-TG materials have a higher temperature resilience. These materials are used wherever the PCB is exposed to particular temperature or current loads and a higher continuous operating temperature is required for the reliability of the PCB.
The accommodation of power electronics and the associated extremely high current intensities require special specifications of the carrier circuit boards. We at Becker & Müller have customized solutions for the production of high-current/thick copper PCB.
Aluminum core PCB – also known as IMS (Insulated Metallic Substrates) – are used for mechanical loads, but primarily for thermal loads. The core of the PCB consists entirely of aluminum and is separated from the conductor pattern by an insulation layer.
Edge metallization (PTH-contour), special contours, countersinks and depth millings, blind vias, buried vias, plugs, special surfaces or colored solder masks, silk screen, coverlay and bluemask, plugging and more: We at Becker & Müller are the ideal manufacturer and development partner when it comes to very special types of PCB.
