will drop in viscosity and enable the material to be dispensed quickly. Once the material is
dispensed onto the casting and pressure is removed, the viscosity again increases, resulting
in a consistently formed bead to ensure repeatability in the assembly process. The materials
that stay in a liquid state tend to be higher in viscosity and will dispense more slowly. When
the circuit board is put in place and fastened, the viscosity of the liquid material remains at a
level that will minimize the stress placed on the board and components during the assembly.
In many products, the liquid thermal interface material’s color has also been chosen to work
well with camera-based inspection systems.
Since these liquid thermal interface materials can be dispensed to fill just about any dimension, they can often displace several different thermal interface materials used within the
module. In many assemblies, thin dielectric pads offer the thermal interface between a casting
or heat-sink and circuit boards that utilize thermal vias under power components. Thick compliant gap pad materials could then be utilized on top of components that require an additional thermal path to remove the heat. The liquid thermal interface materials can be used in both
of these applications and reduce the overall part count within the module. Glass beads can be
included in these products to assist in assuring dielectric integrity. The slump resistant nature
inherent in many of these products offer the ability to dispense thick beads (up to 4-mm thick
in some applications) or be placed in a cone shape to fill even larger voids. This results in less
piece parts being used within the module or even within the manufacturing facility. Since one
material can be used in many applications, and in many forms, there are often price advantages in purchasing the material in larger volumes.
The liquid thermal interface materials were originally designed for the automotive industry
and the need for using highly automated production lines. These materials have been used for
over a decade in some of the most demanding electronic products on the market. Because of
their success there, the demand for liquid thermal interface materials is rapidly rising in all
of the electronic industry, as they assist in reducing the overall cost of manufacturing while
increasing the thermal performance of assemblies.
