Rigid-flex: Designing in 3D
In this month’s issue, our expert contributors share their best tips, tricks and techniques for designing rigid-flex circuits. If you’re a rigid board designer considering moving into the 3D world of rigid-flex, this issue is just what the doctor ordered!
Simulation, Analysis, and AI
Getting today’s designs “right the first time” is critical, especially with costly advanced PCBs. Simulation and analysis software tools can help you in the fight to eliminate respins. They’re not magical, but they can predict the future of your design.
Advanced, Complex & Emerging Designs
This month, our contributors focus on designing PCBs with advanced, complex and emerging technologies. We investigate design strategies for boards that are on the cutting edge of technology, or crazily complex, or so new that designers are still writing the rules as they go.

Rogers Corporation to Exhibit with John Coonrod Presenting at IMS 2023June 8, 2023 | Rogers Corporation
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Rogers Corporation's Technical Marketing Manager, John Coonrod, will give two presentations June 14th in the MicroApps Theater at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in San Diego, CA. Topics include “3D Printed RF Structures Open the Potential to Think Out of the Box” and “Thermal Stability Consistency is Even More Important at Millimeter-Wave Frequencies.”
In addition, Rogers will be showcasing its products in Booth #1635 during IMS, the world’s largest RF and Microwave show, which takes place from Tuesday, June 13 to Thursday, June 15. These products include Radix™ 3D Printable Dielectrics and new Anteo™ low loss laminates.
Rogers new family of Anteo laminates is designed to offer low loss RF performance as an alternative to FR-4 in commercial and consumer applications. With a dielectric constant of 4.07 +/- 0.08 and a dissipation factor of .005 at 10 GHz, Anteo laminates offer two benefits in comparison to thicker grades of FR-4. For a comparable price, it offers superior performance and enables greater antenna gain and efficiency. But the lower dissipation factor also enables similar or marginally improved performance at 1/3rd to ½ the thickness of FR-4, thus providing a significant cost savings and improvement in packaging.
Radix™ 3D Printable Dielectric, is the first 3D material featuring a dielectric constant of 2.8 and low loss characteristics at microwave frequencies. These printable dielectric materials give radio frequency (RF) designers unprecedented design freedom in creating new components, eliminating the need to consider typical manufacturing design constraints.
Rogers Corporation’s Radix3D Printable Dielectric is a proprietary composite material designed for Digital Light Processing (DLP) 3D printing, enabling a scalable, high-resolution printing process for end-use RF dielectric component manufacturing. This printable dielectric material has a targeted dielectric constant of 2.8 and a dissipation factor of 0.0043 at 10 GHz when cured.
The material is intended for use as RF material in applications where new geometric freedom can enhance the figure of merits of an RF system, such as gradient dielectric constant (GRIN) structures and other complex three-dimensional parts. The Radix 3D Printable Dielectric offers the industry a way to manufacture systems and components at scale that could not be made with traditional fabrication methods. Radix materials are available directly from Rogers Corporation and our 3D printing partners. Learn more about Radix 3D Printable Dielectrics by visiting Rogers YouTube channel.
