What Is An Aluminum Nitride Ceramic Substrate?
Simply put, aluminum nitride ceramic (Aluminum Nitride Ceramic) is a ceramic with aluminum nitride (AIN) as the main crystal phase. It is made into a substrate. Imagine the bottom layer inside the circuit board. The base is it! Aluminum nitride ceramics also have a certain space for development in the market now. Aluminum nitride ceramics can be applied to the aerospace field and satellite brackets, as well as rockets, bulletproofs, and armor. Pintejin Ceramics is a professional manufacturer of special ceramics and machining of special ceramics.

1. Aluminum Nitride
(AlN) ceramic substrate is a new type of substrate material with excellent electrical, mechanical and thermal properties, high thermal conductivity (about 320W/m?K) and low dielectric constant. (about 8.8), has a thermal expansion coefficient (4.5×10-6°C) matching silicon Si (3.5~4×10-6°C), high resistivity (>1014Ω?cm), high breakdown field strength ( 1.4×107V/cm), low specific gravity (theoretical density 3.26g/cm3), high mechanical strength (flexural strength 300-400MPa), non-toxic, it is an ideal large-scale integrated circuit heat dissipation substrate and packaging material. .
In addition, the aluminum nitride ceramic substrate does not contain organic components, and the copper layer does not contain an oxide layer. It has excellent corrosion resistance to molten metal, and has a long service life. It can be used for a long time in a reducing atmosphere. The application prospect in aerospace, communication, microelectronics and other fields is very broad.
2. However, The Difficulty Of Making
Since AlN is a compound mainly bonded by covalent bonds, its self-diffusion coefficient is small, and it is difficult to sinter densely, so the sintering process of AlN is a difficulty in the process of making substrate materials. The sintering of aluminum nitride ceramics mainly needs to pay attention to the following points. The first is the heating rate, the sintering temperature and the holding time. The sintering temperature of these high-performance ceramics is generally 1800~1900 ° C. Secondly, a suitable protective atmosphere should be selected to prevent AlN oxidation and sintering. The process must be isolated from oxygen and carried out in an atmospheric environment, because the presence of oxygen will increase the thermal resistance and reduce thermal conductivity. Finally, make sure that the sintering equipment has good temperature uniformity.
3. Excellent Sintering Furnace Appeared!
Carbolite Gero (Carbolite Gero) has a very wide range of customers and mature process technology in the sintering of aluminum nitride ceramics at home and abroad, and can provide chamber furnaces (HTK series) and bell furnaces (HBO series).
The radiation protection and heat insulation shielding material of the furnace and the heating element are the same material, and there is no fiber insulation material, so it can achieve high vacuum degree and a pure atmosphere environment (the fiber material will have pores), which ensures the safety of the sintering process at high temperatures . Carbolite? Gero also guarantees a high-purity atmosphere (>6N) and a high degree of vacuum. Certified safe management of hydrogen partial pressure and reducing or toxic gases upon request. Data logging for quality control. In addition, reasonable distribution of heating elements, three-zone temperature control heating technology and atmosphere preheating ensure good temperature uniformity of the equipment. In addition, the furnace body can be automatically raised and lowered, and the process is very stable, ensuring that the sample is not affected by vibration.
For AlN ceramic sintering applications, Carbolite Gero offers high temperature atmosphere furnaces with a complete hydrogen system and equipped with a two stage rotary vane pump. Metal tungsten insulation and tungsten heating elements. In order to improve the temperature uniformity of the use area, three-zone heating is adopted. The system can use 100% pure hydrogen or a mixture of hydrogen and nitrogen in the range of room temperature to 2200°C. Because of the application of hydrogen, the furnace has added a complete set of safety devices.
