AMEC Thermasol, MPCHS
Micro Porous Ceramic Heatsinks
News Release from:
13 October 2010
AMEC Thermasol would like to introduce our new range of Micro Porous Ceramic Heat Sinks (MPCHS). Due to the open irregular structure of the Micro Porous Ceramic the heat sinks provide a greater surface area to contact with the air compared to metal. Due to this structure the heat sinks have excellent heat dissipation and heat convection properties.
The MPCHS dissipates heat faster than metal heat sinks without storing heat within itself. MPCHS heat sinks are made from the lowest thermal capacity material in unit volume compared to traditional Copper and Aluminium solutions. The surface area of the MPCHS is greater than metal heat sinks by around 30%, hence, more surface area to contact air and dissipate more heat in a set unit time. Being non metallic they also help ensure a reduction in any possible EMI/EMC issues.
The main applications for this type of new ceramic heat sink are high volume applications such as LED/LCD TV’s; Computer monitors; Set Top Boxes; Motherboards; Power Adaptors; Media Players; Broadband Routers; Digital Photograph Frames ; and Net Book PC’s.
They are available in two design types either “Flat” or “Wave” with a wide range of standard sizes which include 10*10*2 (mm), 20*20*2.5(mm), 30*30*2.5(mm), 40*40*2.5(mm), 30*30*5(mm) & 40*40*5(mm). Custom configurations can be manufacturer upon request.
These low profile MPCHS’s are the ideal alternative to traditional Aluminium and Copper heat sinks with outstanding performance and better heat dissipation properties. They also benefit from lower pricing compared to Aluminium and Copper heat sinks.
