Product Aluminum Products

An aluminum PCB belongs to the group MCPCB. This is usually a single-sided PCB with a carrier made of aluminum. The purpose is of aluminum is to effectively dissipate heat from certain areas or critical components.

An MCPCB has a copper layer pressed against a metal carrier with a prepreg as an insulator. The backing can be either aluminum or copper, with aluminum being the most favorable price-wise. Copper has the best thermal properties. In addition to single-sided PCBs, double-sided or multilayer PCBs are also possible on a metal carrier.

CapabilitiesThe capabilities of Aluminum Products

If a lot of heat is generated by the components used, then a PCB with a metal carrier is a solution. MCPCBs are often used in LED applications.

More information
  • Better heat transfer compared to regular FR4 material

    The heat problem is effectively addressed, thinking for example of LED applications

  • Design rules are standard

    There are no special rules for designing an MCPCB

  • More versions possible

    Copper thickness, insulator with different heat properties, Other thickness of metal carrier, Copper instead of aluminum

  • Not limited to 1 layer

    Although a single-sided PCB is the most common, it is possible to design a PCB with more than one layer on a metal carrier.
