Challenge

In our client’s new smartphone, arrows 5G F-51A*, RF modules generated a constant high temperature which meant consumer safety concerns. The current design limited the ability to distribute heat evenly within the device causing hot spot issues.

* arrows 5G F-51A is a flagship model of 5G smartphone manufactured by FCNT LIMITED, made in Japan.

Solution

Once our client outlined their requirements, Gore engineers offered GORE® Thermal Insulation which can maximize the part to fit into the available space within the device. This product also can contribute to keep high performance longer time than air gap.
