I-Connect007 Launches Thermal Management with Insulated Metal Substrates eBook


Reading time ( words)

I-Connect007 is excited to announce the release of the latest title in our micro eBook design series: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Thermal Management with Insulated Metal Substrates.

The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… is an ongoing book series specifically dedicated to educating PCB designers, and serves as a valuable resource for people seeking the most relevant design information available. 

Considering thermal issues in the earliest stages of the design process is critical. Written by Didier Mauve, sales and marketing manager at Ventec International Group, and Ian Mayoh, technical support manager, this book highlights the need to dissipate heat from electronic devices.

The authors provide essential information required to understand the thermal, electrical, and mechanical characteristics of insulated metal substrate laminates. The book also aims to aid PCB designers in the selection and specification of materials for particular applications, which will contribute to more reliable and cost-effective designs.

Alun Morgan, Chairman at EIPC, describes the book as, "A comprehensive tour through the world of thermal management. Required reading for designers and end users wishing to understand the science and practice of using insulated metal substrate materials."

Readers will develop a comprehensive awareness of the physical realities of insulated metal substrates and their applications in the thermal management of electronic assemblies.

Stitching Capacitor: Crosstalk Mitigation for Return Path Discontinuity

06/13/2019 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
When the return path is broken due to the switching of reference planes with different potential, e.g., from ground to power or vice versa after layer transition on PCB, the return current might detour and propagate on a longer path, which causes a rise in loop inductance. This might lead to the sharing of a common return path by different signals that pose a high risk of interference among the signals due to higher mutual inductance. This interference results in signal crosstalk. To mitigate the crosstalk due to return path discontinuity (RPD), stitching capacitors are mounted on the PCB to serve as a bridge between the two reference planes of interest on different PCB layers.

Technically Appropriate Material Choices are Key to Design Success

05/16/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Materials are no longer a passive part of the design; they play an active role in the manufacturability, reliability, and speed of a PCB. I-Connect007’s Nolan Johnson and Mike Creeden, founder of San Diego PCB Design, discuss several key characteristics that designers should consider in their material selection process.
