Phase Change Material extends lifetime of electronic devices.

Press Release Summary:

Optimized for Intel's Penryn mobile Quad-Core CPU, T-pcm(TM) 670 and T-pcm 680(TM) soften at regular chip operating temperatures to fill microscopic irregularities found in surfaces of microchip package and heat-sink. Mix of thermally conductive fillers and resins serves to minimize resin migration and pump-out. Both RoHS-compliant phase change thermal interface materials are inherently tacky and flexible to facilitate application and handling.

Laird Technologies Develops New Phase Change Material for Intel®

Products Offer High Performance, Reliability and Stability for the Most Sophisticated Computer Processing Products

St. Louis, Missouri, USA - May 1, 2008 - Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced two new products in its T-pcm(TM) phase change line of thermal interface materials, T-pcm(TM) 670 and T-pcm 680(TM).

The new products are optimized for Intel's Penryn Quad-core mobile processor. The unique material formulation softens at regular chip operating temperatures to fill the microscopic irregularities found in the surfaces of the microchip package and heat-sink. The proprietary mix of thermally conductive fillers and resins minimizes resin migration and pump-out to extend the lifetime of the electronic device.

Both T-pcm(TM) 670 and T-pcm 680(TM) meet the requirements of Intel's next generation mobile Quad Core CPU - Penryn, and pass Intel's performance and reliability requirements. T-pcm(TM) 670 and T-pcm(TM) 680 phase change materials are inherently tacky for easy application and flexible for easy handling.

Laird Technologies' T-pcm(TM) phase change thermal interface materials are engineered to improve the functionality and processing speeds and meet the demanding thermal, reliability, and cost requirements of computer applications found in computer notebooks, desktops, and servers. All T-pcm(TM) phase change thermal interface materials exceed the requirements of the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, issued January 2003, and the tighter environmental specifications embraced by Laird Technologies' worldwide OEM customers.

"With the launch of T-pcm(TM) 670 and T-pcm(TM) 680, Laird Technologies is targeting mobile PCs and other applications where reliability and performance are critical considerations," said Michael Sutsko, Laird Technologies' General Manager, Thermal Products Business Unit.

"These products build on our existing T-pcm(TM) technology and are ideal for customers' most demanding electronic thermal applications. We are pleased to help deliver industry-leading performance and reliability to Intel's next generation mobile platform."
