Thermal efficient MCPCB enters general lighting market

Thermal efficient MCPCB enters general lighting market
LED thermal management company, Cambridge Nanotherm has launched Nanotherm MCPCB - according to the company the lighting industry’s most thermally-efficient and most cost-effective metal-clad PCB. Thanks to a recent technological breakthrough regarding the company’s patented electro-chemical process, which creates a 20μ-thick dielectric layer of alumina atomically bonded to the aluminium board, Cambridge Nanotherm has been able to radically drive down the cost of Nanotherm MCPCB.

What is needed for a PCB assembly?

What is needed for a PCB assembly?
As PCB assemblers, manufacturing is all about taking data from you and delivering good working circuit boards. Well, it can be just data - as in full turn-key, or data plus some parts, and PC boards - as in a partial turn-key or a kitted job. By: Duane Benson, Chief Technology Champion at Screaming Circuits.

QFN centre pads are so last decade

QFN centre pads are so last decade
The QFN (quad flat pack, no leads) package can no longer be considered exotic. It was about a decade ago, but not any more. In fact, with the wafer scale BGA, it's one of the more common packages for new chip designs. Not all QFNs come with an exposed metal pad underneath, but most do, and that can still cause problems with reflow solder. The pad itself isn't the problem, but improper solder paste stencil layer design can be.
