Why choose aluminum substrate PCB?

Advantages of aluminum substrate PCB

a. The heat dissipation is significantly better than the standard FR-4 structure.

b. The dielectric used is usually 5 to 10 times the thermal conductivity of traditional epoxy glass and 1/10 the thickness.

c. The heat transfer index is more effective than traditional rigid PCB.

d. You can use copper weights lower than those shown in the IPC recommended chart.


Aluminum PCB

Application of aluminum substrate PCB

1. Audio equipment: input and output amplifiers, balanced amplifiers, audio amplifiers, preamplifiers, power amplifiers, etc.

2. Power supply equipment: switching regulator, DC/AC converter, SW regulator, etc.

3. Communication electronic equipment: high-frequency amplifier <filter> report circuit.

4. Office automation equipment: motor drives, etc.

5. Automobile: electronic regulator, igniter, power controller, etc.

6. Computer: CPU board `floppy disk drive’ power supply unit, etc.

7. Power module: inverter “solid state relay” rectifier bridge, etc.

Aluminum substrates are widely used. In general audio equipment, power equipment, and communication electronic equipment, there are aluminum substrate PCBs, office automation equipment, automobiles, computers and power modules.

There are three differences between fiberglass board and aluminum substrate PCB

A. Price

The important components of LED fluorescent tube are: circuit board, LED chip and driving power supply. Common circuit boards are divided into two types: aluminum substrates and fiberglass boards. Comparing the price of fiberglass board and aluminum substrate, the price of fiberglass board will be much cheaper, but the performance of aluminum substrate will be better than that of fiberglass board.

B. Technical aspects

According to different materials and manufacturing processes, fiberglass boards can be divided into three types: double-sided copper foil fiberglass boards, perforated copper foil fiberglass boards, and single-sided copper foil fiberglass boards. Of course, the price of fiberglass boards made of different materials will be different. The prices of fiberglass panels made of different materials and technologies are also different. The heat dissipation effect of LED fluorescent tube and glass fiber board is not as good as that of LED fluorescent tube containing aluminum substrate.

C. Performance

As we all know, aluminum substrate has good heat dissipation performance, and its heat dissipation performance is much better than fiberglass board. Because the aluminum substrate has good thermal conductivity, the aluminum substrate plays an important role in the field of LED lamps.
