Why is the MCPCB Widely Used in the LED Products?
Saturday, April 30th, 2022

MCPCB refers to metal core printed circuit board. It has a good performance in heat dissipation, so it is often used in LED products.

The advantages of MCPCB

Prevent overheating: 

LEDs tend to get overheated very quickly. If a metal core printed circuit board is used, it solves overheating by transferring the energy from one side to another.

Improve the material’s reliability: 

The MCPCB plays a key role in the elements that heats up overly at times. It helps to divert the heat from one side to another where the heat has vanished, which improves the product’s life, making it much more durable.

Adapt to a high temperature: 

Unlike the FR4 technology, the metal core printed circuit board can adapt to products with a high temperature, hence it proves to be very useful for LED products.

Why is the MCPCB widely used in the LED products?

Since it is well-known that the LED products will emit a lot of heat. Based on the advantages, the metal core PCB can transfer heat quickly and prevent overheating. And Aluminum PCB is mostly used in metal core PCBs, for they can operate longer than other metals and longer shelf life.

Moreover, metal core PCB has a high conductive ability, hence there remains ample space for maximum LEDs, which allows producing sufficient light and achieving high performance.

Therefore, based on the advantages of the MCPCB, it is the prior option of the material for the LED products.

LED Lighting: MC-PCBs
Wednesday, November 13th, 2019

LEDs are pretty hot nowadays! Not just the biggest tendency in lighting, but also require a lot of heat dissipation that standard PCB material just can’t handle. So what’s the solution? Metal PCBs. Standard PCB material typically has a thermal conductivity of 0.5 W/m K; which is not adequate for the current high intensity LEDs. With MCPCB materials you can increase the life of your LEDs with better heat dissipation.

What’s the thermal conductivity of MCPCB material?

Up to now, Best Technology has helped many customers with their MCPCB needs and have found the most common questions as shown below:

What is the most cost effective MCPCB?

How do you layout an MCPCB?

Can I get a different dielectric thickness between the metal and circuit layer?

Can I put plated through holes on an MCPCB?

Can I do more than one layer with an MCPCB?

How quick can a MCPCB be manufactured?

What Metals can be used?
