DOCUMENTS AND FILES
Commonly used substrates for high power resistors and terminations are Beryllia, Aluminum Nitride, and to alesser extent, Boron Nitride and Silicon Carbide. While these materials are known for their superior thermal properties, none of them come even close to matching the thermal conductivity of CVD Diamond.
