Thermal conductors offers efficient, cost-effective thermal management solutions
AVX Corporation now offers the new ?-Bridge (Lambda-Bridge) Series thermal conductors. Constructed with high-quality AlN or BeO materials, Lambda-Bridge thermal conductors offers efficient, cost-effective thermal management solutions with dependable, repeatable performance in four small EIA form factors: 0302, 0402, 0603, and 0805. Created to direct heat to heat sinks, thermal ground planes, or other points of thermal interest, to protect adjacent components from hot-spot thermal loads, and enhance overall circuit reliability, the series displays high thermal conductivity, low thermal resistance, and capacitance so low that the devices are practically transparent at RF/microwave frequencies.
The new conductors also highlight RoHS-compliant SMT packages that are completely compatible with automated pick-and-place processing and are excellent for use between active-device and adjacent ground planes. They are also ideal for use between a specific contact pad and case or contact pads, and as direct component contacts in GaN power amplifiers, high-power RF amplifiers, synthesizers, filters, switch-mode power supplies, industrial computers, and pin and laser diodes.
"Our new Lambda-Bridge thermal conductors provide efficient, compact, and cost-effective thermal management solutions, improve overall circuit reliability, and offer an additional layer of protection for adjacent components in a wide range of RF, microwave, and power applications," said Larry Eisenberger, principal technical marketing engineer at AVX.
