Abstract:

The Power Components Branch of the U.S. Army Research Laboratorys Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate has evaluated the use of NuSils EPM 2482 as an electrical insulator in power convertor modules. There is a need for a material that electrically insulates well and does not distort in form when heated. Distorting potting material can induce mechanical stress on and break wire bond connections in packaging. During the test described in this report, the EPM 2482 compound proved to have both the electrical and thermal-mechanical properties that were needed.
