Diamond has long been the technologically preferred material for critical thermal management applications due to its extremely high thermal conductivity, low coefficient of thermal expansion and high electrical resistivity. High costs, however, have traditionally been associated with diamond heat spreaders.
Now MTC Diamonex Polycrystalline Diamond offers all of the benefits of diamond for thermal management applications at an economical price. MTC Diamonex heat spreaders are ideal for applications where higher power output, lower junction temperatures, and improved reliability are desired.
CMP Semi Conductor Processing
MTC Diamonex manufactures CMP pad conditioners which are used in semiconductor processing for chemical mechanical planarization during wafer processing. CVD Diamond provides chemical inertness and superior bond strength for the working grit of the conditioner.
High-Power FET Heat Spreader
Bonding FETs directly on Polycrystalline Diamond heat spreaders enable higher power and performance levels while maintaining lower junction temperatures. The performance enhancement achieved has enabled significantly higher reliability in the most demanding applications.
Electronic design engineers can now use Polycrystalline Diamond heat spreaders when space, performance, and design considerations require advanced thermal management. Low dielectric loss and consistent dielectric properties allow Polycrystalline Diamond to be utilized in very high frequency applications.
