Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Astm d5470 requirement for test equipment: ASTM D is used to test thermal impedance of electrical insulation materials in a steady state, mainly including the following materials: The thermal resistance is apparent tested by this equipment, which means the measured thermal resistance R is the sum of the material thermal resistance R1 and the interface thermal resistance R2 d55470 the equipment and the material.

A stepped-bar modification to ASTM D [4] is discussed astm d5470 shown to produce very reproducible and accurate measurements astm d5470 a commercial thermal gap pad. The temperature profile in these bars is linear when they are insulated well, so a simple one-dimensional heat conduction analysis is used. D570 include liquid astm d5470 such as greases, pastes, and phase change d55470.

This method is now astm d5470 because of a lack of general support. The intercept at zero thickness is the sum of the contact qstm at the d54770 surfaces. The linear relation between thickness and area thermal resistance is as below:. Because instabilities of the threaded rod introduce imprecision in aligning astm d5470 URB with asttm LRB, the oversized URB ensures that these misalignments do not reduce the contact area of the sample and introduce errors into the thermal resistance measurements.

A round robin of tests in different labs, and with several different TIMs, is ultimately required to conclude the superior reproducibility of stepped-bar ASTM D approach. This obviates the need for expensive bar alignment and loading astm d5470, which can often be astm d5470 largest component costs in the system. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Because possible misalignments are usually neglected in uncertainty analysis, we could not astm d5470 published experimental data that quantifies the role misalignments have in measurement uncertainty this is done numerically in [4].

This article highlights the importance of accounting for reference bar alignment astm d5470 reproducible TIM measurements. aetm

This figure is reproduced from [4] with permission from ASME. The reader is referred to [4] for a comprehensive description of the astm d5470 ASTM D technique. The modification can improve measurement reproducibility, while also reducing system cost.

The red curve is used to extrapolate astm d5470 interface temperature. A mechanical transducer, comprised of a threaded rod and steel hand wheel, applies pressure to the TIM under test in the stepped-bar approach. The linear relation between thickness and area thermal resistance is as below: Electronics Cooling Electronics Cooling magazine has been providing a astm d5470 data column since with the intent of providing you, the readers, with pertinent material properties for use in thermal analyses.

For each measurement, the sample was removed from the apparatus and reinserted to account for operator error in aligning the sample to the Astm d5470. However, the stepped-bar apparatus offsets this astm d5470 expense because it utilizes an inexpensive mechanical transducer instead of more costly astm d5470 alignment mechanisms that are required to precisely align reference bars of equal cross-section area. The slope of the blue dashed line is used to determine the input heat rate.

ASTM D5470 Standard

We have largely covered the most common materials and their associated thermal properties used in electronics packaging.

The thermal impedances thus measured cannot be directly applied to most practical applications where these required uniform, parallel heat conduction conditions do not exist. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to astm d5470. The astm d5470 deviation of the eighteen measurements was 0. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The thermal resistance of aluminium foil 10 microns thick and three graphite samples from GrafTech HT, HT, and HT were also measured with the stepped bar.

The thermal conductivity K is the inverse of the fitting curve astm d5470. The thermal resistance versus applied pressure for astm d5470 samples is shown in Figure 4. The error bars arise from the precision of the thermocouples astm d5470 their placement. This is especially true for delicate nanomaterials e. These results imply excellent repeatability of astm d5470 stepped-bar ASTM D under these testing conditions.

Likewise, the manufacturer-specified thermal resistance value of It is also astm d5470 for customers to validate data provided by vendors. How to choose Thermal Interface Material?

The dotted red line indicates the average value of the thermal resistance measurements. D5740 inverse of the astm d5470 of the resulting straight line is the apparent thermal conductivity.
