Thermal interface materials keep cool in automotive infotainment
Today’s complex automotive infotainment systems combine integrated communications, navigation, entertainment and environmental controls as well as the numerous in-vehicle systems. These complex systems pose significant thermal management challenges, says Fujipoly, not least the impact of multiple high-power microprocessors working together under solar load conditions.
In response, Fujipoly offers a large selection of thermal interface materials for a broad range of automotive applications. A critical factor in maintaining ideal operational temperatures is the reliable and complete contact between heat-generating components and nearby heatsinks or spreaders
The company offers Sarcon gap filler pads that deliver a thermal conductivity up to 13W/m degrees K to the company’s newest two-component thermal LG materials with a thermal conductivity up to 3.0W/m degrees K.
Most Sarcon thermal interface materials are available in pre-cut sheets up to a size of 200 x 300mm and can be die-cut to fit an exact component shape or application requirement.
Fujipoly America is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fuji Polymer Industries of Japan. The company is registered ISO9001:2015 and specialises in the fabrication of silicone rubber technology. It also produces Zebra elastomeric connectors, Sarcon thermal interface materials, fusible tapes, and custom silicone rubber extrusions.
Fuji Polymer Industries has eight divisions worldwide (in North America, Europe and Asia) and an international network of distributors and representatives. The company’s North American operations are based in Carteret, New Jersey.
