Led PCBs Metal Core PCBs

Cambridge America, with much experience, serves the needs of the exponentially expanding LED lighting market. Because LED efficiency is lost as temperatures increase, Cambridge America offers two distinct technologies for thermal management.

Heat dissipation is accomplished on conventional FR-4 circuitry through the use of thermal vias, which transfer heat from the top side to a large heat dissipating copper plane on the bottom of the PCB. Hole plugging these thermal vias with various epoxy compounds is often employed.

Modern LED’s are typically of the Surface Mount Technology (SMT) design and lend themselves to our second technology: single sided aluminum core PCB’s. These boards consist of a single copper conductor layer, a thin, typically 3-4 mil, thermal prepreg material as supplied by Berquist, Arlon, Totking, and others, and an aluminum heat sink usually from 30 to 130 mils thick.

MCPCB The field of Solid State Lighting (SSL) often utilizes Metal Core Printed Circuit Boards that are designed to help dissipate heat. Cambridge America has met the challenge of the exponentially expanding LED lighting market. LED efficiency is lost as temperatures increases. To meet the need for higher performance, Cambridge America offers two distinct technologies for thermal management.

Cambridge America is favored by LED manufacturers because we have helped the MCPCB board manufacturers develop, hole plugging techniques as well as the ability to reliably produce scored line technology in aluminum substrate.

Cambridge America, LLC has over 30 years of management and engineering experience and is a professional supplier of bare, unpopulated Printed Circuit Boards. As a professional supplier of Printed Circuit Boards (PCB’s), Cambridge America offers: prototype, pre-production, as well as low, medium and high volume production capabilities for manufactures in North America.

When selecting a PCB supplier you should consider not only the experience and price but the production capabilities, service and the commitment that is given to deliver a quality product on time. At Cambridge America we pride ourselves on not just giving good customer service, but providing Superior Customer Services to every one of our clients.

Since our only business is the distribution of bare PCB’s unlike other PCB suppliers, we can deliver the right product, at the right price at the right time. We eliminate your hassles and headaches, by providing personal on-the-phone service. With our human touch, we answer the phone, answer your questions, clarify any issues and resolving engineering queries as quickly as possible. We are straight forward and communicate delays as soon as known, advising when shipments are in transit.

About Cambridge America

Cambridge America was founded in 2001. The unique business plan that allows Cambridge America to take ownership as well as responsibility of our customer’s PCB products has served us well and allowed us to distinguish ourselves from numerous distributor organizations that typically “drop ship” to their customers without ever touching or looking at the product. Our success and growth since 2001 through the recent turbulent years shows concrete proof of an effective and prudent business plan.
