H.C. Starck offers thermal management for HB-LEDs

Date Announced: 26 Jul 2006

NEWTON, MA -- H.C. Starck develops and manufactures thermal management components for HB-LEDs (High Brightness LEDs) and laser diodes, such as MoCu composites, Cu/Mo/Cu laminates, and plated Mo-flat products.

The reliability and efficiency of semiconductor devices can be improved by maximizing the thermal conductivity of the heat dissipating components, while matching their coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) to those of the diodes.

Specialty coatings with Ni, Au, Ag, Ru, Rh, Pt are available for solder wetting, etch-resistance, protective layers, and electrical contacts.

Additional products under development provide enhanced thermal conductivity along the z-axis (through-thickness) and the unique capability to tailor excessive heat dissipation along localized hot spots, using a special, patent pending process developed by H.C. Starck.
