    New Lambda-Bridge Thermal Conductors released for cost-effective thermal management

    AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensor, control, and antenna solutions, has released the new λ-Bridge (Lambda-Bridge) Series thermal conductors. Constructed with high-quality aluminum nitride (AlN) or beryllium oxide (BeO) materials, Lambda-Bridge thermal conductors provide efficient, cost-effective thermal management solutions with reliable, repeatable performance in four small EIA form factors: 0302, 0402, 0603, and 0805.

    It is designed to direct heat to thermal ground planes, heat sinks, or other points of thermal interest, help protect adjacent components from hot-spot thermal loads, and improve overall circuit reliability, the series exhibits high thermal conductivity, low thermal resistance, and capacitance so low that the devices are virtually transparent at RF/microwave frequencies.

    The new Lambda-Bridge thermal conductors also feature RoHS-compliant SMT packages that are fully compatible with automated pick-and-place processing, and are ideal for use between active-device and adjacent ground planes, between a specific contact pad and case or between contact pads, and as direct component contacts in GaN power amplifiers, high-power RF amplifiers, filters, synthesizers, industrial computers, switch-mode power supplies, and pin and laser diodes.

    “Our new Lambda-Bridge thermal conductors provide efficient, compact, and cost-effective thermal management solutions, improve overall circuit reliability, and offer an additional layer of protection for adjacent components in a wide range of RF, microwave, and power applications,” said Larry Eisenberger, Principal Technical Marketing engineer at AVX.

    Standard configurations for the new Lambda-Bridge thermal conductors currently include 0302, 0402, 0603, and 0805 EIA packages with two standard thicknesses ranging from 20–40mils (T1) and 15–25mils (T2), in edge-wrap (fully-metalized edge) and no-wrap styles, and with either gold-over non-magnetic barrier terminations or gold-over-magnetic terminations. Custom configurations are also available.
