Rogers Introduces MAGTREX 555 High Impedance Laminates


Reading time ( words)

Rogers Corporation is pleased to introduce MAGTREX 555 Laminates, the first product in a new platform of high impedance laminates featuring a high permeability and permittivity. These high impedance laminates enable antenna designers to expand the trade-space of their antenna design enabling up to a factor of six reduction in size with minimal impact on bandwidth, up to a factor of six increase in bandwidth with similar size, or a design optimum in between.

MAGTREX 555 high impedance laminates enable antenna designers to miniaturize VHF and UHF antennas while maintaining the bandwidth achieved in a larger design. These laminates feature a closely matched X/Y axis permeability and permittivity of six and six and a half respectively, along with low magnetic and dielectric loss below 500 MHz. MAGTREX 555 laminates are based on a ceramic / PTFE composite system, manufactured in a process similar to Rogers Corporation’s popular RT/duroid® laminates.

MAGTREX 555 high impedance laminates feature a low X, Y, Z CTE closely matched to copper for thermal reliability and are available in thicknesses from 20 to 250 mils. They are offered with or without copper cladding.

Decreasing Bend Radius and Improving Reliability- Part II

11/22/2019 | Kelsey Smith, All Flex
Many of the issues that arise when using a flex circuit come from a lack of knowledge about how to properly design one, especially when the circuit is required to bend. Many novices will design a circuit that calls for bending the flex in too tight of a bend radius, which can cause damage to the circuit and lower the reliability of the end product. This series of articles will focus on the seven key aspects to consider when designing for maximum durability and maximum “flexibility.”
