IRC, Inc. has developed a new process for printing thick film resistors and circuits directly onto aluminum heatsinks and substrates, allowing higher thermal conductivity and lower operating temperatures for resistors used in automotive applications.
IRC's new resistor manufacturing process involves printing resistors and circuit traces directly onto insulated aluminum substrates. IRC's manufacturing process produces resistors that automotive design engineers can specify for fan speed controls used for radiator cooling and a HVAC fan applications, as well as for such systems as dashlight dimmers. The company expects the new technology to find extensive applications in other electronic systems that require power resistive circuits.
