-- Custom Solutions Now Available for Richardson RFPD's Thermal Management Customers in China

June 20, 2012 – LaFox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announced it has completed an agreement to distribute product from Sapa Group ("Sapa"), a global manufacturer of aluminum solutions. Through this agreement, Richardson RFPD is able to support its customers in China with thermal management solutions from the Sapa Profiles (Jiangyin) Co. Ltd plant that opened in February of 2012.

Sapa is the largest aluminum extrusion producer in the world, with operations in Europe, North America and Asia. Sapa partnered with Richardson RFPD as an Asia distributor due to Richardson RFPD's global footprint and ability to offer customers technical solutions in a cost effective manner.

“Richardson RFPD has a long history of supplying their customers with total solutions for power and thermal management requirements," said Steve Jackson, Business Development Manager-Thermal Products for Sapa Extrusions North America. "Richardson RFPD offers the technical knowledge and outstanding customer service that Sapa demands of itself and our partners.”

"We have several loyal customers in China who are manufacturing high power—10kW and above—inverters for various applications," said Kevin Connor, Richardson RFPD's Vice President of Energy, Power & Interconnect. "We know these customers have custom thermal management requirements that we have been unable to address in the past, because we lacked a local manufacturing source. Sapa provides us with the resources necessary to serve our customers needing air-cooled and liquid-cold plate thermal solutions."

"We recognize Richardson RFPD as a specialty source in high power applications," said Anne-Christine Roulet, Sapa Group Sales Manager, Asia. "The relationships they have built within the renewable and industrial markets allow us, through their specialty sales force, to better address a focused niche that we believe fits well with our thermal capabilities."

Richardson RFPD's China field sales engineering team has begun assisting circuit designers to integrate Sapa thermal management solutions into inverter designs. For technical information or to purchase SAPA products, please visit the Sapa storefront on the Richardson RFPD website.

    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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
