American Standard Circuits (ASC) Press Release - July 7, 2009

American Standard Circuits, Inc. Receives Second Technology Patent

ASC receives first patent for metal-backed Printed Circuit Boards

Click to visit American Standard Circuits (ASC)West Chicago, IL July 7, 2009: American Standard Circuits, Inc. (ASC) reported it has received its second technology patent from the United States Patent & Trademark Office. U.S. Patent 7,540,081 covers Thermasil Film which is used to bond high or low frequency printed circuit boards (PCB) to a metal heat sink with a thermally conducting electrically insulating silicone based film. Thermasil can be made to any thickness from 3 mil to 25 mil and thermal conductivity can be tailored from 1.5 to 4.5 W/mK. ASC will license this technology to companies and fabricators interested in using this technology.

“ASC has a successful track record in developing technology solutions for its customers. This invention continues to highlight ASC’s commitment to advancing technology and enhances our Thermal Management Solutions portfolio. This complements our Electrasil offering which is both thermally and electrically conductive. Thermasil provides customers with cost, performance and quick delivery advantages. Laminates of any size can be custom made. Our R&D team continues to work on green technologies, specifically, in the areas of LED and Solar technology,” said Anaya Vardya, CEO of American Standard Circuits, Inc.

Dr. Sandy Kumar, one of the co-inventors of Thermasil film, believes that Thermasil is ideally suited for critical thermal management in LEDs, power electronics, defense, telecommunication and solar photovoltaic technologies. PCBs bonded with Thermasil to the heat sink can quickly dissipate the heat from electronic devices without making any electrical contact to the heat sink. This interfacial film is stable up to 600 oF. Thermasil can also be made in putty form to fill in complex shapes and air cavities. Another variant of Thermasil is where components need to be quickly assembled-disassembled and permanent bonding is not allowed.

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
