Ceramic PCB Substrates
One outstanding reason for turning to ceramics in PCB design is because of high ceramic PCB thermal conductivity. Ceramic PCB substrates such as alumina, aluminum nitride, and beryllium oxide are highly thermal conductive materials, which quickly transfers heat away from hot spots, dissipating it over the entire surface. For example, designers in the electric vehicle industry choose ceramic PCB substrates, taking into consideration the thermal equation with strong heat conducting material.
Altium Designer 18, used world-wide by PCB engineers and designers, has the cutting-edge technology you need to implement a ceramic PCB. These designs exclusively wick away heat from parts/components without fans and use much smaller heat sinks. Ceramic PCB are up to 170 times more thermally conductive, compared to standard FR-4 resin boards, and can handle operating temperatures up to 350C.
With these features, Altium Designer 18 delivers:
The most intuitive, modern, and cohesive PCB design environment
Highly productive environment and provides an all-inclusive feature set with a single-price license
With over 30 years of PCB research and development, Altium enables professionals to handle any design challenge
