High power amplifiers are a key element in transmission of cellular signals to mobile users and IoT devices (Internet of Things) via macro base stations and remote radio heads. Power levels keep increasing in order to provide higher data rates without sacrificing cell site coverage area. As far as specialty materials go, low loss dielectrics with higher thermal conductivity are a must for these power amplifiers.
Rogers has long been the industry leader in providing materials for RF and microwave power amplifiers. Literally millions of power amplifiers designed using Rogers’ laminates have been operating in the field reliably year after year. Low loss, high thermal conductivity, stability over temperature and excellent long term aging characteristics under heat provide the efficiency and maximum power output possible when it comes to RF power amplifier design.
