Rogers’ Next Generation Products Designed to Meet the Existing
and Emerging Needs of Advanced Millimeter Wave Multilayer Designs

Rogers RO4835T™ spread-glass-reinforced, ceramic-filled laminates are low-loss materials in 2.5, 3.0, and 4.0 mil thicknesses. They are well suited for millimeter-wave frequencies as part of the inner cores of 5G hybrid multilayer PCBs.

RO4450T™ bonding materials are available in 3, 4, and 5 mil thicknesses to help construct those 5G hybrid multilayer circuits. These spread-glass-reinforced, ceramic filled bonding materials complement the different materials that will form these hybrid circuits, including RO4835T and RO4000® laminates.

CU4000™ foils provide a suitable finishing touch for many hybrid multilayer circuit foil lamination designs. For more information, visit Rogers in Booth 117 and online at Rogerscorp.com/5G.

PCB Laser Depaneling Systems from LPKF

LPKF’s PCB depaneling systems produce a better product at a lower cost. Advantages of laser PCB depaneling machines include:

No stress - Mechanical methods are hard on the solder joints of a PCB.
No burrs - A laser-cut board’s edge is smooth and clean; there is no need for further downstream processing.
No particles - Lasers don’t create the dust particles generated by traditional mechanical cutting methods such as dicing saws and routers. Therefore, any downstream cleaning can be eliminated entirely from the production line.
