Haverhill firm’s electric form earns it a tilt at national award
Cambridge Nanotherm, a producer of innovative nanoceramic thermal management technology, has been shortlisted for the “LED Lighting Product of the Year” category at the 2015 Elektra Awards.
Hosted by Electronics Weekly since 2002, the Elektras reward the achievements of individuals and firms across the European Electronics industry.
The Haverhill-based team has been recognised by the judging panel and the editors of Electronics Weekly Magazine for its unique thermal management technology for LEDs, Nanotherm DM.
Nanotherm DM is a robust and cost effective alternative to aluminum nitride (AIN) and involves a patented ‘ECO’ process (Electro Chemical Oxidation) to grow a layer of aluminium oxide crystals onto an aluminium substrate. Nanotherm DM is completed with a copper circuit sputtered onto the nanoceramic to customer specifications.
Cambridge Nanotherm, based in Homefield Road, is competing in the LED lighting product of the year category against NASDAQ listed ON Semiconductor, Khatod Optoelectronics and Zeta Specialist Lighting.
“Learning we have been shortlisted for the Elektra’s is testament to the hard work and dedication of Cambridge Nanotherm’s team. Nanotherm DM is transforming thermal management in the LED industry,”
Erwin Wolf, CEO of Cambridge Nanotherm commented: “Our technology offers LED manufacturers a unique alternative to traditional materials; together with our customers we are creating new device possibilities for new applications.”
The nomination follows on from Nanotherm being shortlisted for the R&D 100 awards and winning the 2015 Insider Media Made in the East technology award.
