Understanding What Can Affect PCB Dk Variation and Phase Consistency
Presented by: John Coonrod, Technical Marketing Manager
This webinar will give an overview of how circuit materials and circuit fabrication can impact the phase consistency and the circuit-perceived dielectric constant (Dk). Many of the newer millimeter-wave applications are much more sensitive to phase variation than some microwave applications. The circuit-perceived Dk is what Rogers Corporation designates as Design Dk. The Design Dk is basically a Dk value of the material, which is generated by an extraction process based on RF circuit performance.
This eBook takes a look at the importance of mmWave technology and the design considerations needed for antenna and system design. The first two articles discuss mmWave technology related to 5G NR systems. Then we look at antenna simulation for better design of systems using CDF to assess 5G antenna directionality. The last two articles cover the PCB material considerations for designing circuits at mmWave frequencies and takes a comprehensive look at the subtle effects that need to be understood to properly design systems.
