Laird Performance Materials has developed a hybrid thermal & EMI absorber material that supports 5G handheld device and network infrastructure applications. CoolZorb 5G is specifically designed for the millimeter wave (mmWave) and microwave frequencies that 5G will implement. The multifunctional CoolZorb 5G serves as a heat-mitigating gap filler and EMI-reducing absorber to optimize 5G system performance.
Used like a traditional thermal interface material between heat source, such as an IC and heat sink or other heat transfer device or metal chassis, CoolZorb 5G is an excellent thermal conductor for heat dissipation. CoolZorb 5G functions to suppress unwanted energy coupling, resonances or surface currents causing board level EMI issues. By addressing both EMI and heat challenges, Coolorb 5G enables engineers to shorten the design cycle and move their 5G products to market faster.
The CoolZorb 5G hybrid thermal & EMI absorber material is available in standard sheet sizes of 18” x 18”, in thicknesses ranging from 0.040” – 0.200” (1.0mm- 5.1mm).
