For LED ApplicationsST. LOUIS, Feb. 19, 2008 -- Laird Technologies said its new T-lam SS LLD is a metal-core printed circuit board (MCPCB) laminate for LED applications. The environmentally friendly laminate is designed to keep bright and ultrabright LED light engines burning brighter, longer and more uniformly.
T-lam SS LLD features a copper circuit layer and aluminum base plate bonded together with Laird Technologies' T-lam LLD dielectric. T-lam SS LLD laminates are processed through standard circuit board manufacturing and assembly processes.
Circuit boards designed with T-lam SS LLD allow LED light engines to last longer than competitive materials, and provide a uniform thermal path for consistent output of LED light strips, the company said. The dielectric's unique microstructure allows the assembly to withstand thousands of thermal cycles due to CTE mismatch.
"The LED Blu for LCD TVs and streetlight production will more than triple in 2008," said Robert Kranz, global product director. "Laird Technologies has partnered with ITEQ to provide high volume laminate production for these explosive markets."
The company said the T-lam SS LLD is ideal for LED lighting applications, specifically LED Blu for TVs and monitors, as well as light engines for streetlights, commercial property safety lighting and general lighting applications.
Design samples are available now with mass production beginning this month. The laminate price starts at 6 cents per square inch.
