CoorsTek, one of the largest technical ceramics manufacturers, today announced introduction of aluminum nitride substrates. Ideal for the rapidly growing LED market and other markets where high heat dissipation is useful, these ceramic substrates boast a thermal conductivity of 170 W/m K.
CoorsTek AlN (aluminum nitride) ceramic substrates feature a very high dielectric strength, are a non-toxic alternative to BeO (beryllium oxide), and exhibit a thermal expansion coefficient similar to Si, GaN, and GaAs semiconductors.
“While we already offer an extensive line of ceramic substrates, our new high performance aluminum oxide substrates cover high heat dissipation applications,” says Andrew Golike, electronics general manager for CoorsTek, Inc.
Established in 1910, CoorsTek is one of the largest technical ceramics manufacturer in the world with over 40 facilities in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
