Housings for radar circuitry in CE alloys
Osprey® CE13 controlled expansion (CE) alloy housing with Osprey® CE9 carrier replacing Kovar* for use in land-based radar systems
CE alloys used
- Housing: Osprey® C13F
- Carrier: Osprey® CE9F
- Lids: Osprey® CE17F
Kovar* with Cu-Mo heat spreaders
Advantages of using Osprey® CE11F controlled expansion alloy
- 1/3 the weight
- 6 times higher thermal conductivity than Kovar*.
- Fewer manufacturing steps (no Cu-Mo heat sinks are required)
- Ease of plating
