Vincotech’s modules with pre-applied phase-change material

Aug 01, 2013

Unterhaching, Germany - August 1st, 2013.
There are several advantages to using phase-change material (PCM) rather than conventional thermal grease as the thermal interface material (TIM) between the power module and heatsink. Vincotech offers modules with a layer of pre-applied PCM. The thermal interface material is applied in a layer with uniform thickness by a screen-printing process. This document describes the benefits of this phase-change material and provides tips on handling modules. There are several advantages to using phase-change material (PCM) rather than conventional thermal grease as the thermal interface material (TIM) between the power module and heatsink. Vincotech offers modules with a layer of pre-applied PCM. The thermal interface material is applied in a layer with uniform thickness by a screen-printing process. This phase-change material is thixotropic and therefore will not flow without the application of pressure. Standard soldering profiles may be used. A lid or a foil can prevent the phase-change material’s surface from coming into contact with the soldering oven’s carpet.
