to dissipate heat
before it becomes an issue.
Thermal Throttling As Temperature Rises
Base plate made of aluminum instead of traditional iron ensures 3X thermal conductivity.
A thin layer of NanoCarbon is coated on the base plate through electrostatic adhesion to
enhance thermal radiation capability.
Transfer heat from the back side PCB to the base plate so the NanoCarbon base plate can
dissipate heat passively.
Effectively lowers backside PWM component temperature by 10%.
This specialized nanostructure of carbon molecules has extraordinary thermal conductivity.
