HSMtec - Intelligent PCBs for innovative LED luminaires

With HSMtec PCB technology, Häusermann blazes new trails in the thermal management of high power LEDs. The technology proceeds selectively here. Massive copper elements - whether as profile or in wire form - are integrated into standard FR4-PCBs directly below the heat generating components. Through the intelligent combination of integrated copper profiles with modern PCB technologies such as micro and

thermal vias, it's possible to realize direct metallic contact of the solder surfaces (LED, heat sink) with the profiles. This makes avoidance of bottlenecks in the thermal path possible. In addition, copper features twice the heat conductivity of aluminum thus ensuring rapid heat dissipation without intermediate insulating layers beneath the LED's heat pad.

A base of efficient materials such as copper and FR4 and a proven manufacturing process, HSMtec enables cost-effective and reliable solutions for individual requirements:

  • Free integration of intelligent light controls on board.
  • Flexible light and product design via multi-dimensional construction.
  • Minimal thermal resistance guarantees the LED's maximum service life, optimal stability, and best light quality.
  • Optimized thermal performance for Power-LEDs and Arrays up to 200 W
  • Proven materials and processes guarantee reliability and simple follow-on processing.
  • Optional dielectric strength > 4kV without extra cost.

HSMtec is manufactured using the standard production process, thereby ensuring simple follow-on processibility. Furthermore, HSMtec enables the construction of multi-dimensional PCBs. Kerf millings at the nominal bending points ensure that individual segments can be brought into the desired orientation by arbitrarily adjusting the tilt angle. That creates unimagined possibilities and flexibility in light and luminaire design.

The technology is qualified in accord with DIN EN 60068-2-14 and JEDEC A 101-A, and is audited for air travel and automotive applications.
