An Introduction to Rogers Material PCB by PCBGOGO
With the development of electronic technology, there are electronic products calling for more and more materials, such as Rogers material, which is used for high frequency circuit, making sure that improve electrical performance as used in defense, aerospace and mobile network applications.
What is Rogers PCB?
Rogers is a company that manufactures the laminate materials that are used to make circuit boards. Most circuit boards are made of a material known as FR4 (Flame Retardant level 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 with copper laminate), they are better known for cores with better high frequency properties, such as PTFE (Teflon). They’re more expensive than fiber glass, but are less lossy at high frequencies. This makes them be good for RF circuit boards.
Benefits of Rogers PCB material
FR-4 material provides the fundamental standard for PCB substrates, keeping a widely effective balance between cost, durability, performance, manufacturability, as well as electrical properties.
However, as performance and electrical properties plays an important role in your designs, Rogers materials have the advantages as follows:
Low electrical signal loss
Effective-cost PCB fabrication
Lower dielectric loss
Better thermal management
Wide range of Dk (dielectric constant) values (2.55-10.2)
Low outgassing for space applications
Improve impedance control
