Electronics thermal management innovator Cambridge Nanotherm® Ltd has announced that UL® has given recognised status to its Nanotherm® Laminated Copper (LC) thermal management products.
The recognition assures that the products have been found to be effective and safe after being subject to tests by UL International (UK) Ltd. The environmentally-friendly thermal management substrate solutions are enabling customers to add another high-performance material choice to their design tool box. The Nanotherm® LC material not only allows the customer to create a design based upon a conventional PCB, but also the ability to add the circuit to any 3D shape – creating a Circuit-on-Heat Sink solution.
Our unique nano-ceramic materials make electronic and LED devices shine brighter, last longer or function far more efficiently. We provide solutions to complex power consumption problems in the automotive, industrial and consumer domains, with a technology portfolio that includes Nanotherm LC (Laminated Copper) – a high-performance MCPCB (metal core PCB) for thermally challenging electronics.
Steven Curtis, Cambridge Nanotherm’s Chief Engineering Officer, commented, “This is fantastic news for ourselves and our customers. It gives them the confidence to use our materials in their thermally challenging designs knowing that they have met UL’s stringent electrical and flammability standards.”
Nanotherm® ceramic is grown on the surface of aluminium to create a dielectric layer directly onto the surface of an aluminium substrate. The nano-ceramic dielectric layer is between two and 10 times thinner than the competition and achieves an industry-leading thermal resistance of 0.014 oCcm2/W. The dielectric has a thermal conductivity of 7 W/mK which is 2-3 times more effective at heat dissipation than conventional MB PCB (metal back printed circuit board) dielectric materials.

About Cambridge Nanotherm® Ltd
Cambridge Nanotherm® is a global provider of innovative thermal management solutions for lighting, power semiconductors, automotive and consumer applications. Our unique nano-ceramic materials make electronic and LED devices shine brighter, last longer or function far more efficiently. We provide solutions to complex power consumption problems in the automotive, industrial and consumer domains, with a technology portfolio that includes Nanotherm LC (Laminated Copper) – a high-performance MCPCB (metal core PCB) for thermally challenging electronics; Nanotherm 3D which enables circuits to be built directly onto 3D heat sinks; and Nanotherm DM (Direct Metal) – the ultimate thermal management solution for applications which normally require prohibitively expensive Aluminium Nitride materials.
In 2013 the company was recognized with a prestigious Frost & Sullivan award for innovation in the thermal management of LEDs. The company was the UK winner of the 2011 Clean Tech Open Competition, sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank, TSB and Carbon Trust. The company was supported by TSB, EEDA New Anglia LEP and ERDF grants and was a member of the Carbon Trust Fast-track Entrepreneur Programme. Since 2011, Cambridge Nanotherm® Ltd has been financially backed by Enso Ventures.
Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right way. In their session at Big Data Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positi...

JFrog on Thursday announced that it has added Docker support to Bintray, its distribution-as-a-service (DaaS) platform. When combined with JFrog’s Artifactory binary repository management system, organizations can now manage Docker images with an end-to-end solution that supports all technologies. The new version of Bintray allows organizations to create an unlimited number of private Docker repositories, and through the use of fast Akamai content delivery networks (CDNs), it decreases the dow...

The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...

The speed of product development has increased massively in the past 10 years. At the same time our formal secure development and SDL methodologies have fallen behind. This forces product developers to choose between rapid release times and security. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Murray, Director of Cyber Security Consulting and Assessment at GE Healthcare, examined the problems and presented some solutions for moving security into the DevOps lifecycle to ensure that we get fast AND ...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use c...

After a couple of false starts, cloud-based desktop solutions are picking up steam, driven by trends such as BYOD and pervasive high-speed connectivity. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, cut through the hype and the acronyms, and discussed the emergence of full-featured cloud workspaces that do for the desktop what cloud infrastructure did for the server. He also discussed VDI vs DaaS, implementation strategies and evaluation criteria.
