ARC Technologies Exhibiting at Design Con 2016January 21, 2016 | ARC Technologies
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
ARC Technologies is showcasing its wide range of capabilities to solve microwave and RF interference, radar absorbing, and EMI control challenges at 2016 Design Con (www.designcon.com) in Santa Clara, CA.
Learn more about ARC Technologies new testing capabilities and solutions, including their newest Hot Melt Absorbers, Focused Beam Testing system providing electromagnetic test capabilities up to 110 GHz, the ARC Clear Conductive Electromagnetic Shielding AC2ES™, and the latest automotive anti-collision radar materials.
The latest Hot Melt Absorber product line gives the customer a very simple and fast way to apply absorber to a surface that requires noise suppression, for example a PCB. Different hot melt products are available depending on application and frequency requirement.
The AC2ES is an advanced, optically clear, transparent, thin-film conductor that provides excellent EMI shielding and conductivity. It is a robust, ultra-thin, flexible film incorporating conductive nanoparticles and a low-cost direct replacement for Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) films. AC2ES is available in flat or 3D form, or can be supplied pre-cut to exact customers’ specifications.
Addressing automotive radar designers and autonomous vehicle technology needs for accuracy and reliability, ARC Technologies has perfected a family of optimal RF noise mitigation materials. These materials can be formulated, molded or otherwise fabricated to best suit the application. ARC Technologies can help get technology up to speed with new radar absorber products SB1009, SB1006, and MC1000. Its SB and MC series absorbers are weather and chemical resistant and are suitable for use on the vehicle body, bumpers and other exterior surfaces.
ARC provides material testing and qualification services to many ASTM and MIL standards. It offers electromagnetic test capabilities up to 110 GHz with the addition of a focused beam system. Measuring a material’s permittivity (ε) and permeability (μ) is critical in the design and development of high frequency materials and systems. The ARC Technologies Inc. focused beam system allows for non-destructive, accurate measurements of these material parameters, including reflection and transmission loss, from 2-40 GHz and 75-110 GHz. The testing service provides customers a more affordable and fast way to turn around their testing needs.

The designer needs to have a working understanding of two key manufacturing operations: basic circuit board fabrication procedures and assembly process practices. For printed circuit board manufacturing, the number of steps required to produce the printed circuit board correlates to the circuit board's complexity. Greater process complexity in fabricating the circuit board equates to increased costs. To develop any portion of the electronic product, the designer must apply the design for manufacturing (DFM) principles established in the industry. In fact, DFM should always be the goal of the design engineer. It encompasses a wide range of disciplines that must be considered during the planning phase of any product.
