With the development of electronic technology, electronic products need more and more materials, such as Rogers materials for high frequency circuits, to ensure the improvement of electrical performance in national defense, aerospace and mobile network applications.
What is Rogers PCB?
Rogers is a company that makes laminates for circuit boards. Most circuit boards are made of a material called FR4 (flame retardant grade 4), which is a glass fiber / epoxy composite with copper foil laminated on one or both sides.
Rogers will sell you FR-4 laminates (FR-4 core and copper laminate), which are known for their fiber cores with better high frequency characteristics, such as PTFE (Teflon). They are more expensive than fiberglass, but have less loss at high frequencies. This makes them ideal for RF circuit boards.
Advantages of Rogers PCB materials
FR-4 material provides the basic standard for PCB substrate, maintaining a wide and effective balance between cost, durability, performance, manufacturability and electrical characteristics.
However, because performance and electrical properties play an important role in your design, Rogers materials have the following advantages:
Low power signal loss
- PCB manufacturing with effective cost
- Low dielectric loss
- Better thermal management
- Wide range of dielectric constant (DK) (2.55-10.2)
- Low outgassing in aerospace applications
- Improved impedance control
