State Department. We are also a certified Minority Supplier, awarded in
recognition of our dedication to promoting industry-wide diversity.
Amitron has been producing Aluminum Printed Circuit
Boards (also called Metal base PCBs) for over a decade. Although originally
envisioned for use in the power-supply industry these substrates are now most
widely used in High Brightness LED products. There are many names for these
products; Aluminum clad, aluminum base, Metal clad(MCPCB), Insulated Metal
Substrate(IMS or IMPCB), Thermally conductive PCBs, etc… but they all mean the
same thing. A thin layer of thermally conductive but electrically insulating
dielectric is laminated between a metal base and a copper foil. The copper foil
is etched into the desired circuit pattern and the metal base draws heat away
from this circuit through the thin dielectric.
Demand for heavy copper-clad circuits in automotive,
computer, industrial controls, and military is growing very fast. More than 90%
of the existing circuit board manufacturing is limited or not capable of
producing reliable heavy copper printed circuit boards.
Multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs) represented
the next major evolution in fabrication technology. From the base platform of
double sided plated thru came a very sophisticated and complex methodology that
would again allow circuit board designers a dynamic range of interconnects and
Single sided PCB’S have been around since the late
1950s and still dominate the world market in sheer piece volume. Single-sided printed circuit boards are
easily designed and quickly manufactured. They serve as the most cost effective
platform in the industry.
