ARC Technologies brings its wide range of capabilities in noise and interference control to the 2016 International Microwave Symposium ( exhibition scheduled for May 24-26, 2016 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. Representatives from ARC Technologies will be on hand at booth #1318 to show their latest solutions for noise and interference control for the RF/microwave industry, including hot melt absorbers, AC2ES, and new plating and testing services.

Hot melt absorbers provide a fast and simple way to cut noise by adding easy to apply absorbing materials at any phase in a product’s design and development stages. A wide range of hot melt bbsorber materials are available for different projects, depending upon application and frequency range.

AC2ES (ARC Clear Conductive Electromagnetic Shielding) is a transparent, thin-film conductor that provides excellent EMI shielding and conductivity. It is a flexible but durable film formed with conductive nanoparticles that is a low-cost, direct replacement for indium tin oxide (ITO) EMI shielding films. AC2ES is available in flat and 3D forms, and precut to a customer’s specification.

In addition to its high-performance material products, ARC Technologies offers high-quality electroless copper plating services based on a newly installed plating system capable of depositing copper layers as thick as 3 µm per hour. The electroless plating process allows ARC to plate on a wide range of materials, including plastics and composite substrate materials. ARC Technologies also offers extensive electromagnetic test capabilities to 110 GHz, including measurements of a material’s permittivity (ε) and permeability (μ), parameters critical in optimizing RF/microwave circuit designs. ARC’s focused beam system allows for non-destructive, accurate measurements of these material parameters, including reflection and transmission loss, from 2 to 40 GHz and 75 to 110 GHz.

Visit ARC Technologies at IMS2016 at Booth #1318 to learn more about its high-quality material-based products for noise and interference control and its plating and test and measurement services. Don’t forget to request a free Engineering Survival Kit (ESK). The ESK is intended to get material engineers started in solving EMI/RF noise issues and help select the product best suited for their application.
