“Carbon Composite Laminate for Thermal Management of Printed Circuit Boards & Substrates”
Presented by Doug Schneider – President of Stablcor Technology, Inc. 17011 Beach Blvd. Suite 900, Huntington Beach, CA 92647 USA Phone: (714) 375-6644 (714) 788-6605 Email:
Thermal management in PCB assemblies is primarily achieved through ground planes. Various copper containing materials are typically used, but aluminum is often used when weight is a critical factor. Thermal conductivity, coefficient of thermal expansion, rigidity and density of conventional PCB materials and ground plane materials will be examined. stablcorThe role of these new carbon materials will be evaluated for use in board level assembly, component packaging and direct chip attach.
This presentation provides a general overview of typical defects and failure modes seen in board level and package assemblies. Ground breaking case studies in automotive, supercomputer, solar, flip chip and aerospace, will show how a carbon composite laminate when embedded into a PCB allows electronics to pass beyond the thermo-mechanical limitations of today’s current materials and technologies.
Doug Schneider, the CEO & President and co-founder of Stablcor, is an inventor and entrepreneur with 28 years of experience in advanced composite materials. He has held previous executive management positions at Lewcott Corp, Reinhold Industries and Ablestik Adhesives. Doug has worked on the implementation team for Voyager and Voyager I, the first all carbon composite aircraft, the rocket motor design of Virgin Galactic Space Ship, the thermal management support for Space X and Atlas V rocket propulsions systems. In addition he has a long history of product conceptualization and product development in carbon fiber, carbon/carbon, and nano-technologies for space, rocket propulsion, structural, ballistic, and electronic applications.
