Changing Temperature Can Change Circuit Performance

Circuit materials are evaluated by a number of different parameters, including dielectric constant (Dk) and dissipation factor (Df). Those two parameters also have temperature-based variants that provide insight into the expected behavior of a circuit material with changes in temperature, notably the thermal coefficient of dielectric constant (TCDk) and the thermal coefficient of dissipation factor (TCDf).
