Rogers to Show High-Speed and Millimeter Wave Materials at DesignCon 2019


Reading time ( words)

Rogers Corporation will return to DesignCon in Santa Clara, California (at booth #421) and show some of its high-performance circuit materials: XtremeSpeed RO1200 laminates and RO4000 products used in multilayer structures which include a family of thin laminates, bonding materials, and sheeted copper foil options.  

DesignCon is a premiere event for electronic design engineers working on circuit and system levels, now in its 24th year. Held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, the event takes place January 30-31.

Visitors to Rogers’ booth will be able to learn more about:

XtremeSpeed RO1200 Laminates

XtremeSpeed RO1200 high speed, extremely low loss laminates, with a low dielectric constant of 3.05, and a maximum dissipation factor of 0.0017 @10 GHz, provide outstanding signal integrity, reduced signal skew, and reduced cross-talk. Combined with superior thermal/mechanical performance, low CTE, and a halogen free UL 94 V-0 rating, these laminates are well suited for the most demanding high layer count applications.

As channel speeds rise to 112Gbps and beyond, hardware designers need high performance circuit materials with superior electrical properties for applications like Network Infrastructure, High Performance Computing, and Test & Measurement. XtremeSpeed RO1200 circuit materials are engineered to meet the unique electrical and thermal/mechanical demands of high speed designs and enable system designers the flexibility to design leading edge systems that maximize data throughput and minimize latency in performance demanding applications.

RO4000 Products for Multi-Layer Structures:

Next-generation products designed to meet the existing and emerging needs of advanced millimeter wave multi-layer designs. RO4835T laminates, offered in a 2.5 mil, 3 mil and 4 mil core thickness, are 3.3 Dk, low loss, spread glass reinforced, ceramic filled thermoset materials designed for inner-layer use in multilayer board designs, and they complement RO4835 laminates when thinner cores are needed.

RO4450T 3.2-3.3 Dk, low-loss, spread glass reinforced, ceramic filled bonding materials were designed to complement RO4835T laminates and the existing RO4000 laminate family, and come in 3 mil, 4 mil or 5 mil thicknesses.

RO4835T laminates and RO4450T bonding materials exhibit excellent Dk control for repeatable electrical performance, a low z axis expansion for plated through-hole reliability, and are compatible with standard epoxy/glass (FR-4) processes. These materials are an excellent choice for multilayer designs requiring sequential laminations, as fully cured RO4000 products are capable of withstanding multiple lamination cycles. RO4835T laminates and RO4450T bondplys have the UL 94 V-0 flame retardant rating, and are compatible with lead-free processes.

Lastly, CU4000 and CU4000 LoPro Foils are sheeted foil options for designers looking for foil lamination builds, and provide good outer layer adhesion when used with RO4000 products.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Supply Chain and Material Price Pressures

04/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
EIPC’s seventh Technical Snapshot webinar on April 14 was timely and appropriate. In the context of current supply chain issues and material price pressures facing the PCB industry, particularly in Europe, the EIPC team brought together an outstanding group of experts—each a leading authority in his field—to analyse and comment upon the areas of concern and to respond to questions raised by a capacity audience. As Alun Morgan said, “If you don’t use the European supply chain, you won’t have it anymore!”

Time, Space, Structure, and Model Analysis of CCL Price Increase

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.

Top Five Takeaways from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/15/2021 | Chris Mitchell, IPC VP, Global Government Relations
IPC APEX EXPO 2021, which went all virtual this year, exemplified how the electronics industry has responded to the COVID-19 global pandemic: with resiliency, agility, and an unwavering commitment to build electronics better. APEX EXPO featured great content and robust discussions on topics of critical importance to the global electronics industry. From my vantage point leading IPC’s government relations programs, here are my top five takeaways from this year’s event.
