Heavy Copper Printed Circuit Boards

Heavy copper printed circuit boards feature 3 ounces of copper in outer/inner layers. These printed circuit boards are valued immensely, due to their thermal management capabilities. The heavy copper composition helps keep inner components cool, and improves their performance. Rigiflex Technology, Inc. provides performance-oriented, heavy copper PCBs, which ensure efficient thermal management and power distribution.

Benefits of Heavy Copper PCBs

Heavy base copper PCBs offer several advantages such as:

  • Reduced wired buss configurations lead to small PCB size
  • Easy integration with high-power circuits and control circuits
  • Enhanced thermal resistance reduction with addition of copper plating in the heat vias
  • Increased current carrying capacity, as well as endurance to thermal strains
  • Reduced layer count due to easy incorporation of multiple copper weights on a single layer
  • Enhanced mechanical strength in PTH Holes and connector sites
  • Allow use of exotic materials to their full potential without causing circuit failure
  • Heavy copper plated vias carry high current through the circuit board, as well as help transfer heat to the heatsink in the exterior.
  • The PCBs can withstand high thermal cycling
