Bonding Materials Minimize Loss in Multilayer Millimeter-Wave PCBs

May 07, 2021 | John Coonrod, Technical Marketing Manager

As millimeter-wave technologies continue to advance in the printed circuit board (PCB) industry, there are emerging needs for more diverse circuit constructions. A previous limiting factor for complex millimeter-wave PCB constructions, had been appropriate bonding materials to accommodate the circuit fabrication as well as the demanding RF performance at these high frequencies. These issues have been addressed in the following blog.

EVs, HEVs Push for Development of More Advanced Battery Management Systems & Power Semiconductors

Jan 17, 2018 | Rogers Corporation

Twelve countries around the globe have set goals to end the sale of gas- and diesel-powered vehicles starting in 2040. This will significantly accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid vehicles (HEVs). It will also increase the need for improved battery management systems to monitor and control the high-voltage battery stacks, and for power semiconductor devices for battery management, on-board charging, infotainment, electric motors, and more.

Millimeter Wave Frequencies: Getting a Grip on the Glass Weave Effect

Nov 29, 2017 | John Coonrod

Millimeter-wave frequency bands hold valuable spectrum for what lies ahead: fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications and automotive collision-avoidance radar systems. Signals at 60 GHz and higher might have once been thought too high to transmit and receive with affordable circuits. But semiconductor devices and circuit technologies have improved in recent years and millimeter-wave circuits are becoming standard electronic equipment in many car models.
