AD1000 is a high dielectric constant substrate that permits circuit miniaturization compared to traditional low loss materials. It is especially beneficial for power amplifiers, filters, couplers and other components using low impedance lines.

AD1000 is a woven glass reinforced laminate. This allows for Greater Dimensional Stability and Greater Mechanical Robustness than other 10 Dk Products. Its large panel size is also advantageous for "multi-circuits per panel" processing.

AD1000 is considered a "soft substrate" and is relatively insensitive to vibrational stress. This allows miniaturized circuitry without requiring the complicated processing or fragile handling associated with brittle pure ceramic materials.

AD1000 is compatible with the processing used for standard PTFE based printed circuit board substrates. In addition, the low Z-axis thermal expansion provided by the ceramic loading, will improve plated through hole reliability compared to typical PTFE based laminates.

AD1000 was specifically developed for Miniaturized Circuitry for compact devices (i.e. GPS Receivers), Patch Antennas (where smaller size is required), Satellite Communications Systems, Power Amplifiers (PAs), Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs), Low Noise Block Downconverters (LNBs), Radar Modules and Manifolds, Aircraft Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS), Ground Based Radar Systems.
