Benefits of COB MCPCB

  • Excellent heat dissipation
  • Substantially reduce space and cost
  • Provide enhanced reliability and lifespan
  • With better security protection(difficult to hack using reverse engineering)

COB (Chip on Board) is not a new packaging technology in the semiconductor industry. COB MCPCB applications according to process and material can be categorized into two types: mirror aluminum and silver or gold plating. By using wire bonding & epoxy packaging then directly embedded on MCPCB, this practice can extend the lifespan of LED and unified light emission.

Compared to the traditional packing method, COB technology can directly mount multi-chip on the substrate, such as COB MCPCB. With this technique, we can reduce lighting areas, materials used, and costs on the system’s mechanical & assembly. For example, 20W of high power LED in traditional assembly might need 20 pieces of 1W LED chip packaged in 20 individual LED components then connect individually to a substrate one by one. On the other hand, by using COB technology, we can package 20 pieces of 1W LED together to become a single chip module then use wire bonding to mount on a copper or aluminum MCPCB.

Implementing the modularization concept, the designer will have more freedom and flexibility by using multi-chip packaged to one single module, with necessary design and combination, to increase overall effectiveness and reduce developing cost substantially. Besides the saving of developing cost, it also increases the luminous output per watt through modularized & packaged LED chips. With the help of MCPCB, it also enhances the heat dissipation of COB package LED. This not only increases the light-emitting efficiency (luminous per watt increased) of components but also extends the lifespan (reliability increased) of components.

By combining the Super Pillar design concept, COB MCPCB manufactured by Cofan Taiwan has much better heat conductivity and dissipation than traditional MCPCB. Cofan applies patents for these self-developed techniques and process covering:

  • Reflective MCPCB (COB) for LED Backlight
  • Reflective Pocket in PCB (COB) for LED Die Attachment
  • MCPCB with Thermal Conductive Pillar
