Printed-circuit-board (PCB) materials are the focus of product displays and presentations from Rogers Corp. Visitors to Booth No. 2039 will have a chance to learn more about RO4835 circuit laminates, with outstanding low dielectric loss tange...
Understanding the impact of selecting different materials and manufacturing processes can separate standard high-power resistive components from those designed and tested for true high-reliability applications.
Sorting through the specifications helps when selecting a circuit material for microwave, millimeter-wave, and even high-speed-digital circuits.
Rectangular substrate integrated waveguide is a transmission-line format that supports planar circuits capable of operating to microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies.
Gallium nitride is exerting its strength in myriad communications applications, and suppliers are trying to keep pace by developing solutions for next-generation systems.
As microwave signals expand into automotive-safety and IoT remote-sensing types of applications, advanced technologies will be needed at reasonable performance/price ratios.
Expect 2016 to be a busy year, as plans are in motion to create technologies with capabilities that push past the boundaries of today’s state-of-the-art solutions.
A wide range of naturally occurring and engineered materials are used in the construction of active and passive RF/microwave components and circuits.
Technology Editor Chris De Martino spoke with John Palmour, CTO and Co-Founder of Wolfspeed about the company's intentions and his take on gallium-nitride-based technology.
