PCB Stack Assembly

M3-F PCB Stack Assembly

M3-F PCB Stack Assembly

A copper cold finger plate was placed within the board stack to allow heat to dissipate quickly from the FPGA surface, which can produce up to an estimated one watt of heat. Heat conducting double-sided thermal tape was placed between the cold finger and FPGA, and conductive thermal pads were placed on the ends of the cold finger to improve thermal conductivity between the cold finger and housing.

Three different assemblies are available. The user can choose a self focusing M3-F focus module made by New Scale Technologies, a standard fixed focal length M12 lens with lens holder, or a adaptable housing for a variety of C-Mount lenses. When assembled, the thermal pads are compressed between the front and rear housing, the compression improves thermal conductivity.
