AD300A: PTFE/Woven Fiberglass/Micro-Ceramic Filled Laminate
AD300A is a woven fiberglass reinforced PTFE/Microfine Ceramic composite material and is a significant improvement in
cost/performance over traditional fluoropolymer-glass laminates. This combination offers designers an advantage for
improving electrical performance through the use of advanced material without the additional cost traditionally
associated with higher performance...
CLTE: RF & Microwave Laminate
CLTE is a ceramic powder-filled and woven micro fiberglass reinforced PTFE composite engineered to produce a stable,
low water absorption laminate with a nominal Dielectric Constant of 2.98.
High Frequency Circuit Materials: RO4835™
Rogers Corporation offers an array of RO4835™ high frequency circuit materials designed to operate up to 40 GHz, and provide 10x more resistance to oxidation than standard RF thermoset materials. These laminates feature a dielectric constant of 3.48 with a dissipation factor of 0.0037 (measured at 10 GHz). They are ideal for power amplifiers, phased-array radar, automotive radar, sensor applications, and other applications requiring low insertion loss.
Laminate Composites For RF/Microwave Applications
Arlon Microwave Materials specializes in products made from fluoropolymers (i.e. PTFE), ceramic-filled fluoropolymers, ceramic-filled hydrocarbon thermosets, and other materials that deliver the electrical performance needed in frequency-dependent circuit applications. These products are supplied as copper-clad laminates with bonding plies, or prepregs, for production of multilayer printed circuits. Arlon has over "50 years of experience in microwave materials", today providing products that are used to make combiner boards and feed networks for microwave applications as well as basestation antennas and power amplifier boards for the wireless telecommunications infrastructure market.
Laminate For RF And Microwave Printed Circuit Boards: AD300C
Arlon’s AD300C is the third generation, commercial microwave and RF laminate material designed with low dielectric, low cost and excellent low loss characteristics. This ceramic-filled, woven fiberglass reinforced PTFE composite material is built on a cost-effective construction of unique chemistry formulation and processing to offer RF and Microwave designers an advantage for improving electrical and mechanical performances without the additional cost traditionally associated with higher performance. AD300C provides a significant improvement in cost/ performance over the existing AD300A product line and other traditional fluoropolymer-glass laminates.
IsoClad: RF & Microwave Laminates
IsoClad laminates are nonwoven fiberglass/PTFE composites for use as
printed circuit board substrates. The nonwoven reinforcement allows these
laminates to be used more easily in applications where the final circuit will
be bent to shape. Conformal or “wrap-around” antennas are a good example
