Press Release Summary:
Intended for electronic assemblies where thermal management/heat dissipation capabilities are desired, Powerlink PLPCB combines low-power circuits with high-power bus bars using 2 or more copper weights on same external layer. Multiple layers are possible, with high and low current-carrying capacity on same trace. Outer layer copper weights up to 50 oz/ftÂ² are usable. With high surface area to cross-sectional area ratio, bus bars allow heat to efficiently dissipate.
Original Press Release:
Electronic Interconnect (EI) Now Offers PowerLink PLPCB for Thermal Management Applications
Chicago, IL., USA - Electronic Interconnect (EI), a leading provider of printed circuit boards and PCB engineering and design services, announces the availability of Powerlink PLPCB constructions for electronic assemblies where thermal management/heat
dissipation capabilities are desired.
PowerLink technology enables power and control circuits, both heavy copper and standard copper, to reside on the same layer with interconnection between
the circuits. Bus bars with multi-copper weights handle the heat dissipation in the PCB, enabling extended PCB life and safety in overall functioning. The bus bars allow
heat to dissipate more efficiently due to their high surface area to cross-sectional area ratio.
In PowerLink PLPCB, low-power circuits are combined with high-power bus bars using two or more copper weights on the same external layer to increase system reliability and power. This breakthrough can greatly reduce total system size while reducing
assembly time and cost. Multiple layers are possible, with high and low current-carrying capacity on the same trace. Outer layer copper weights up to 50 oz/ft2 are usable. The technology can be used with through-hole and/or SMT technology.
