RO4500™ Series High Frequency Laminates are fully compatible with conventional FR-4 and high temperature lead free solder processing. These laminates do not require special treatment needed on traditional PTFE-based laminates for plated through hole preparation. This product series is an affordable alternative to more conventional antenna technologies, thus allowing designers to maximize the price and performance of their antennas.
The resin systems of RO4500 dielectric materials provide the necessary properties for ideal antenna performance. The coefficients of thermal expansion (CTEs) in both the X and Y directions are similar to that of copper. The good CTE match reduces stresses in the printed circuit board antenna.
These properties, in combination with a dimensional stability value of less than 0.05%, make RO4500 laminates an excellent candidate for printed circuit antenna applications.
