Cambridge Nanotherm manufactures the most efficient thermal management substrate technology for high-powered electronics. A patented electro-chemical oxidation (ECO) process creates a super-thin nanoceramic layer on the surface of aluminium to form a dielectric with exceptionally high thermal conductivity. This combination of the industry’s thinnest dielectric with the highest thermal conductivity yields the lowest thermal resistance and provides the platform for Cambridge Nanotherm’s core products.
Nanotherm LC has the highest thermal performance of any MCPCB, making it the perfect choice for thermally demanding electronics applications such as high-power LED and power electronics modules.
Nanotherm DM is a unique thin-film substrate that is a cost-effective replacement for ceramics such as aluminium nitride and is used for LED and semiconductor packaging.
Crytur brings to SSL and LED market single crystal solutions which are successfully applied in niche applications like laser components, scientific instruments and other high demanding applications. Crytur single crystal phosphors can provide an effective way for light conversion in high power applications using multi-chip LEDs or LD searching for new phosphor solutions. Single crystals are fully transparent for excitation radiation as well as for converted light and can be manufactured in the shape of optical element with defined surface parameters.
In a wide range of single crystal compositions material exhibit very good thermal stability and practically unlimited lifetime.
