Cambridge Nanotherm® Opens World’s First Electro-Chemical Nano-Ceramic Production Line for Electronic Substrate Solutions.

Cambridge Nanotherm®, the manufacturer of advanced Aluminium Nano-Ceramic substrate technology for the thermal management of electronic applications, installs the first of many fully automated lines.

The first application of this technology is effective heat dissipation for LED lighting which has been proven to reduce the operating temperature by 20% which can extend the life of the LED or allow it to be driven harder to produce more light per device and be more energy efficient. The next production line is already being planned so that this unique technology can be extended to other applications such as thermal management for power electronics and other electronics applications.

Dr Pavel Shashkov, Founding Director, said “I am extremely proud to formally open the first of many production lines. Nanotherm® is truly unique and will revolutionise the electronics substrate business. This innovative technology is set to change the way we think about every day products like LED lights and will allow them to last much longer and shine brighter with less energy consumption.”

Cambridge Nanotherm® Ltd’s R&D engineers started to develop the technology back in 2010 and from there were recognised with a prestigious Frost & Sullivan award for innovation in 2013. The company has successfully taken the technology from R&D to production in just three years. This journey to the prototype production line was helped with a grant from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB).

Financial backers, ENSO Ventures, really believed in the technology and made major investments into the new 1000m2 facility and commissioned the first fully automated production line specifically designed for the Patented Nano-Ceramic manufacturing process. The new facility was also supported by New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership through the Growing Business Fund.

Nanotherm® Technology

Nanotherm® ceramic is grown on the surface of aluminium to create a dielectric layer directly onto the surface of an aluminium substrate. The nano-ceramic dielectric layer is between two and 10 times thinner than the competition and achieves an industry-leading thermal resistance of 0.014 oCcm2/W. The dielectric has a thermal conductivity of 7 W/mK which is 2-3 times more effective at heat dissipation than conventional MB PCB (metal back printed circuit board) dielectric materials.
