The importance of Aluminum and Metal Core PCBs

(Also known as Metal backed PCBs, Metal base PCBs, or Metal clad PCBs). Circuit boards with high heat-generating components are susceptible to failure and malfunction if the right materials are not used in their PCB fabrication. One of the most widely used substrate...
