The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to... Thermal Management with Insulated Metal Substrates, Volume 2 spotlights material selection for cost-effective solutions and reliable designs. This book covers the latest developments in the field of thermal management, particularly in insulated metal substrates, using state-of-the-art products as examples and focusing on specific solutions and enhanced properties of IMS. These include not only the heat dissipation and the drive to increase thermal conductivity (W/mK), but the total thermal balance as well.
Readers will learn the various methods that have been applied to the modeling and testing of thermal materials. Different approaches give varying values of thermal conductivity when applied to the same material, and the effects of measurement errors and tolerance in dielectric thickness can also vary. One of the most pertinent questions answered is how to improve reliability of components as they become increasingly smaller.
