T-lam Metal-Core PCB

For LED Applications
ST. 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 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.

Exhibiting the characteristic of materials that are electrical insulators or in which an electric field can be sustained with a minimum dispersion of power. They exhibit nonlinear properties, such as anisotropy of conductivity or polarization, or saturation phenomena.
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
