Rogers Corporation’s (NYSE: ROG) Advanced Circuit Materials Division 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.
