Heraeus Design Optimization for SCB Substrates, LEDs, Fraunhofer

More light in the long run •    Junction temperature and thermal management of High Brightness LEDs (HMLEDs) optimized •    Fraunhofer Institute completes tests on substrates In close collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration (IZM) Heraeus has continued to work on the design optimization of its SCB substrates for LEDs. Quite apart from the results already gained in the field of short duration LED applications, the focus this time was put on applications of a longer duration. ...

Optimize High-Power LEDs with Heraeus IAMS Thick-Film Technology

By Anita LaFond, Senior Editorial Manager, Constructive Communication, Inc. As demand for LED (light emitting diode) luminaries continues to grow, new thermal management technologies are allowing manufacturers to produce LEDs that have higher light output and longer lifespan. LEDs offer many advantages including low energy consumption, long service life (bulbs can last up to 40,000 hours or more), and environmental safety (they contain no mercury). The disadvantages of LEDs, such as higher prices than incandescent or fluorescent lighting, will dissipate as new man...

Heraeus SCB technology enhances thermal management in LED luminaires

The new stamped circuit board (SCB) technology available from Heraeus opens up a whole new concept of thermal management geared towards the realization of reliable and economic solutions in the area of thermal dissipation. The demands placed on electronic systems are continually growing, whilst the systems themselves are become ever smaller and increasingly complex. Heraeus‘ reaction to this ongoing trend towards miniaturization has been to develop a sophisticated smart solution. The SCB technology is specially designed for small circuits.
