TT Electronics Introduces Thermal Jumper Chip for Enhanced Temperature Rise Management


Reading time ( words)

TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, announced the introduction of the TJC series thermal jumper chips, enabling circuit designers to manage temperature rise in compact power electronic assemblies. These parts provide a thermally conductive pathway with electrical isolation for management of PCB hotspot areas. Aluminium nitride, which has nearly five times the thermal conductivity of alumina, is employed in the thermal jumper chip to keep compact electronic assemblies cooler which enhances product reliability.

“There is a growing demand for compact high power assemblies that require board-level thermal management,” said Stephen Oxley, Senior Resistors Engineer, Applications and Marketing, TT Electronics. “TT is the only global resistor manufacturer offering this technology to tackle thermal instability in high power density designs.”

The TJC series boasts greater thermal conductivity than the equivalent footprint of 70µ copper, and therefore gives better thermal connection than an uninterrupted trace. The component’s compact mass and design (available in a case size as small as 0603) minimises PCB area and total assembly size and weight. These features are particularly suitable for power supplies, power amplifiers, RF amplifiers, and high power laser diode applications that may be found in the aerospace, medical, and industrial markets.

Approaches to Overcome Nodules and Scratches on Wire-Bondable Plating on PCBs

07/17/2019 | Young K. Song and Vanja Bukva, Teledyne Dalsa Inc., and Ryan Wong, FTG Circuits
Initially adopted internal specifications for acceptance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used for wire bonding was that there were no nodules or scratches allowed on the wirebond pads when inspected under 20X magnification. This paper details if wire bonding could be successfully performed over nodules and scratches and if there was a dimensional threshold where wire bonding could be successful.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.
