Representatives from Rogers Corporation’s Advanced Circuit Materials Division will be on hand at the upcoming 2011 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) to share insights on the optimum use of the company’s high-performance circuit materials, including its RT/duroid® 6035HTC, and RO4360™, laminates. The 2011 IEEE IMS, scheduled for June 7-9, 2011 at the Baltimore Convention Center (Baltimore, MD), is the RF/microwave industry’s leading trade event, with a three-day exhibition and full week of technical sessions.
Members of Rogers ACMD will be on hand at Booth #2515 to discuss the benefits and advantages of their printed-circuit-board (PCB) materials in high-frequency analog and high-speed digital circuits. For designers of high-power, high-frequency circuits, such as power amplifiers and beam-forming networks, RT/duroid 6035HTC features outstanding thermal conductivity of 1.44 W/m-K with z-axis dielectric constant of 3.5 and low loss tangent of 0.0013 at 10 GHz. RT/duroid 6035HTC laminates consist of a high-thermal-conductivity (HTC) fluoropolymer composite with thermally stable, reverse-treated and electrodeposited copper foil and a unique filler material that helps minimize wear on machine tools compared to competitors’ high thermal conductivity substrates that use abrasive fillers.
Visitors to Rogers booth will also have a chance to learn about the Advanced Circuit Materials Division’s Technology Support Hub. It is an efficiently organized information center within the Rogers website (http://www.rogerscorp.com/acm/technology) that offers a free download of Rogers’ Microwave Impedance Calculator software for calculating transmission-line impedance values on different materials as well as an operator’s manual for the software. The Technology Support Hub also provides a wealth of articles based on the use of Rogers’ materials, technical reports, and design tips, as well as a quick link to an engineer when technical assistance is needed. Visitors to Rogers’ booth will have access to a personal computer and can register as a user of the Technology Support Hub, for free access to its many benefits.
