Unveiling Best Thermal Management Star PCBs for Philips Luxeon-T and Cree MK-R High Power LEDs

SinkPAD is proud to announce availability of SinkPAD Star PCB for the new Luxeon-T and the Cree MK-R LEDs at the Strategies in Light Show, Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA on February 12th-14th, 2013. You can come by our booth #418 to see it, or reserve your samples by visiting our website.

SinkPAD is building momentum with a strong start to 2013! Thermal Comparative Test results from customers continue to validate the SinkPADTM MCPCB as an innovative technology in thermal management of LEDs.

SinkPAD corporation’s new thermal management printed circuit boards are a complete and effective solution to the challenges faced by the solid state lighting industry, specifically those with high power LED PCB applications.

SinkPADTM conducts heat out of the LED system (LED cooling) by creating a direct thermal path between the LED and the surrounding atmosphere, which eliminates thermal resistance of the dielectric material in a traditional IMS PCB or MCPCB. SinkPADTM still uses a dielectric, but this dielectric isolates the metal base electrically and leaves it thermally connected.  

The thermal path should be electrically neutral within the LED package, i.e. Cree XPG, XML, XTE, MK-R, Luxeon Rebel, M, T from Philips Lumiled, N219 from Nichia in order to solder the LED directly to the SinkPADTM. To find out how SinkPAD’s technology can remove the heat in your LED application, contact us or visit the SinkPAD website, www.SinkPAD.com.
