Aluminum Core PCB Material
Aluminum core PCBs are popular for power converters and LEDs because of their ability to dissipate heat, flexibility, and low cost. But there’s more to aluminum core PCBs than aluminum. When you are choosing the other materials for your PCBs, you should have access to current cost and availability of your components, so you can stay within budget and deliver your project on time.
If you used Altium Designer 18 to design your aluminum core PCB, then you would be able to access data-rich libraries with extensive materials for your choosing. This technology, ActiveBOM, also provides designers with up-to-the-minute information on price and availability, so you can make strategic materials selections for your aluminum core PCB.
ActiveBOM is more than just a list of materials. It also lets users:
Add supply chain information to materials at any time, putting it directly in the BoM
Appy information to all instances of a material used in the design
Track costing fares and receive alerts for potential blowouts
Make the ActiveBOM BomDoc the source of all BoM data for the PCB
Determine which materials to use on your aluminum core PCB based on not only their function but also their cost and availability with ActiveBOM. Explore this innovative technology and more when you download a free trial of Altium Designer 18 today.
