Rogers Corp.’s Advanced Circuit Materials Division, a global leader in Microwave Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Materials, recently introduced rolled copper cladding options with its RO3003™, RO3035™ and RO3203™ low dielectric constant laminate materials.
Smooth rolled copper, paired with the very low dielectric loss of the RO3000® PTFE-ceramic resin system, results in high frequency circuit materials with best-in-class insertion loss. These materials are ideal for loss-critical millimeter wave frequency designs, where consistent circuit performance matters, such as automotive radar sensors and point-to-point microwave backhaul communications systems. While already a benchmark for 77 GHz automotive radar sensors, RO3003 3.0 dielectric constant laminates are now available with rolled copper foils from ½ ounce up to 0.040" thick rolled copper plate, further reducing insertion loss.
About RO3000 Laminate Materials
RO3000 high frequency circuit materials are ceramic-filled PTFE composites, available in a wide range of dielectric constants, intended for use in commercial microwave and RF applications. This family of products was designed to offer exceptional electrical and mechanical stability at competitive prices. RO3000 series laminates are available without woven fiberglass reinforcement providing circuit materials with unique, electrically isotropic properties compared to competitive material offerings.
