Getting A Grip On The Glass Weave Effect

Millimeter-wave frequency bands hold valuable spectrum for what lies ahead: fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications and automotive collision-avoidance radar systems. For that to happen, low-loss laminates must be available for circuits operating from 60 through 77 GHz, without performance limitations placed by the glass weave effect at those high frequencies. Just what is the “glass weave” effect and what does it have to do with millimeter-wave circuits? It’s all about the wavelengths.

Low Density Laminate Overcomes PTFE Limitations

Circuit weight and density are critical factors in some microwave applications, notably in satellites and airborne systems, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). To meet the needs for high electrical performance with mechanical reliability, Rogers Corp. has developed a new addition to its well-known line of RT/duroid® circuit-board materials: RT/duroid...
