Aluminum PCB Thermal Conductivity
As more and more products feature LED lights, aluminum PCBs are becoming more commonplace. The thermal conductivity of aluminum makes it a good candidate for any product that produces considerable heat. While many PCB designers are used to designing traditional FR4-based PCB, with the right software, they can transition easily to designing aluminum core PCB.
Altium Designer 18 (AD18) makes it easy to not only choose the right material for your PCB project, they also make it easy to design. AD18 features an array of technology features that make it a great choice as your design platform. Using AD18, you will be able to:
Check your signal integrity with digital and analog circuit simulations
Access component libraries with detailed information, such as cost and availability
Render your aluminum PCB design in 3D to check for design errors
Transfer information-rich output files to manufacture
Thermal conductivity is just one of the many considerations you have when it comes to PCB design. No matter what kind of board you need to design: aluminum, ceramic, or FR4, let Altium Designer power your project from beginning to end. Get a free trial software now to explore it further.
