Feb. 21, 2013
Date Announced: 21 Feb 2013 Southern Manufacturing Show, Farnborough UK – Following the recent launch of its Nanotherm™ MBPCB (Metal-Backed Printed Circuit Board) product, Cambridge Nanotherm has signed its first value added reseller (VAR) agreement with UK-based printed circuit board (PCB) maker Spirit Circuits. Cambridge Nanotherm has developed a unique process for converting Aluminium into Alumina (Aluminium Oxide [Al2O3]). The process allows the surface of an Aluminium plate to be converted into a layer of Alumina – which acts as a dielectric. A range of standard Printed Circuit Board fabrication techniques can then be used to apply circuitry onto the nano-ceramic dielectric layer. “We are very pleased be the first Value Added Reseller of NanothermTM in the UK as that will allow our customers access to this leading edge thermal management product,” said Steve Driver, Spirit’s Managing Director. “The Nanotherm product will provide our customers with better thermal performance and smaller footprints for thermally challenged designs in both the LED lighting and power electronics segment.”Pavel Shashkov, Cambridge Nanotherm’s CEO said: “We are delighted to have signed this VAR agreement with Spirit. Their thermal management expertise and capability in the field of MBPCB will allow us to expand our access to market and provide their customers and design engineers with Nanotherm material for their demanding applications.” Photography for this story is available in jpeg format from [email protected] Spirit Circuits Ltd: Spirit Circuits is a PCB and MBPCB manufacturer based in Waterlooville, Hampshire.
