In printed circuit boards, the base of the board is the primary part of the circuit. And, we have studied the substrate used as the base in PCB. But, that substrate is not thermally efficient. To meet the needs of high thermal products, here comes the metal core PCB. MCPCB is the abbreviation of the metal-core printed circuit board. It is also popular as the thermal PCB. It contains the metal material as its base. This material is usually copper or aluminum covers one side of the PCB

The main purpose of the metal core is to change the direction of heat away from the printed circuit board. Hence, it transfers the heat eight to nine times faster than the simple PCB. It also keeps the components cool. As a result, efficiency and performance of for it increases. It prevents the circuit from damages.

JLCPCB is the foremost PCB prototype & manufacturing company in china, providing us with the best service we have ever experienced regarding (Quality, Price Service & Time). We strongly recommend ordering PCBs from JLCPCB

Application and Uses

The metal core has an enormous range of applications and use. Some are:

  • Automotive LED applications
  • Photovoltaic application
  • In power supplies
  • Telecommunication.Voltage Regulator
  • Industries
  • Hybrid motor control, etc
  • Solid State Relays
