American Standard Circuits, Inc. Receives First Technology Patent
ASC receives first patent for metal-backed Printed Circuit Boards
Chicago, IL June 2, 2009: American Standard Circuits, Inc. (ASC) reported it has received its first
technology patent from the United States Patent & Trademark Office. U.S. Patent 7,527,873 covers the Electrasil
Film which is used to bond high or low frequency printed circuit boards (PCB) to a metal heat sink with an
electrically (and thermally) conductive silicone based film. ASC is willing to license this technology.
“ASC has a successful track record in developing technology solutions for its key customers. This invention
continues to highlight ASC’s commitment to advancing technology. Electrasil provides customers with cost and
performance advantages. A number of our customers are already taking advantage of this offering,” said Anaya
Vardya, CEO of American Standard Circuits, Inc.
“This invention will be useful in printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies that operate at various
frequencies. These include high frequency applications such as those used in wireless communication systems (e.g.,
up to 40 GHz) and/or Radiofrequency (RF) systems, as well systems that operate at much lower frequency. It
provides a void-free bond and is especially beneficial for PTFE PCB’s that have very high CTE’s. A key product
benefiting from this innovation includes Power Amplifiers used in wireless infrastructure applications,” stated Bo
Patel, Executive Vice President, ASC.
