Metal Core Basics

Metal Core Boards use a base metal material to spread heat across the circuit board.

Metal core is used in high-heat creating environments, including LED, power and motion based applications.

The core used is usually an aluminum core or copper core.
It can also be composed of special alloys.

Plate thickness generally ranges from 30 to 125 mil, while the copper foil thickness can be 1-10 mil.

MCPCBs can transfer and dissipate heat many times faster than regular FR4 boards. This improved thermal management helps to extend the life and quality of use of many products.
