Filler achieves a 20% increase in polymer thermal performance

A filler claimed to increase polymer thermal performance while reducing production costs, has been introduced by Carbodeon. By using 0.03wt.% nanodiamond material at 45% thermal filler loading the company can achieve a 20% increase in polymer thermal performance. Last October, Carbodeon published its data on thermal fillers showing that the conductivity of polyamide 66 (PA66) based thermal compound could be increased by 25% by replacing 0.1wt.% of the level of boron nitride filler (45wt.%) with nanodiamond material. The latest refinements in nanodiamond materials and compound manufacturing allow for 70% less nanodiamond consumption and thus, a reduced cost.

CVD materials enable 300+ mm diameter component manufacture

CVD materials enable 300+ mm diameter component manufacture
A range of materials grown using CVD (chemical vapour deposition) processes has been introduced by Morgan Advanced Materials. Morgan's CVD SiC (Silicon Carbide) and PBN (Pyrolytic Boron Nitride) are suitable for use in semiconductor applications such as rapid thermal processing and plasma etch process chamber components.The materials are also suited for use in metalorganic CVD tools for high-brightness white LED manufacturing, using the indium gallium nitride process.

Could graphene FETs drive greater RF integration?

Could graphene FETs drive greater RF integration?
There is growing anticipation that graphene will soon emerge as a replacement for silicon, fuelled by its outstanding promise. Now, a lack of progress towards monolithic integration may have turned an important corner thanks to the latest R&D breakthroughs, as Philip Ling reports.

TIMs target high-performance electronics

TIMs target high-performance electronics
Techsil have introduced 2 new one-component thermal interface materials to the electronics market. While fans, heat sinks, and even liquid cooling and thermoelectric devices can be used to provide enough cooling power, the problem remains to get the heat from the hot components into the cooling hardware. Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) are designed to fill in air gaps and microscopic irregularities, resulting in dramatically lower thermal resistance and thus better heat dissipation and cooling.

Laminates & prepegs reduce insertion loss

Isola Group has announced the introduction of Tachyon-100G laminates and prepregs, which enable line cards required to transmit 100GbE at data rates in excess of 25Gb/s per channel. Tachyon-100G has identical electrical properties as its predecessor Tachyon; however, the Z-axis CTE on Tachyon-100G is more than 30% lower than Tachyon, making it more suitable for fabricating high-layer count, 0.8 mm pitch line cards with heavy 2 oz. copper inner layers.

Imec joins Graphene Flagship

To coincide with Graphene Week 2014, the Graphene Flagship announce that one of the largest-ever European research initiatives is doubling in size. 66 new partners are being invited to join the consortium following the results of a €9 million competitive call. While most partners are universities and research institutes, the share of companies, mainly SMEs, involved is increasing.

The What, Why And How Of Rubber Specifictions For Sealing Profiles – A Whitepaper By Andy Billingham, M.D., EMKA UK

Choosing a sealing profile does not have to involve choosing the material as there are many standard sections in standard rubbers found to be suitable for general purposes such as control cabinet door sealing, where specification may be made primarily on the correct mechanical fit.

New graphene-type material created

New graphene-type material created
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have created a new material, related to graphene, which has the potential to improve transistors used in electronic devices. The material, ‘triazine-based graphitic carbon nitride’, or TGCN, was predicted theoretically in 1996, but this is the first time that it has been made.
