Shengyi Launches High-Performance, Low-Loss RF/Microwave Material


Reading time ( words)

Shengyi Technology has launched AeroWave, a high-reliability, cost-effective material system targeted towards auto radar (24GHz) base station transceivers, power amplifiers, telemetry devices and antenna systems.

AeroWave is a woven glass-reinforced thermoset UL-94 V0 material that exhibits excellent electrical and mechanical properties with a consistent and stable Dk (dielectric constant) and a low Df (dissipation factor) over a wide range of frequencies (1GHz to 35GHz) and temperatures (-40C°to +125C°).

Tarun Amla, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Shengyi Group, said, “The rapid development and deployment of RF/microwave products mandates that there be a large number and variety of vendors that can provide superior materials systems to the marketplace in a cost-effective and timely manner. We believe that our new AeroWave™ technology readily addresses this need. With Shengyi’s vast experience as a laminate provider we can deliver cost-competitive; high reliability and production-ready laminates to address a broad spectrum of customer needs.”

Product Description and Availability

The AeroWave low-loss laminate material presents a strong value proposition for today’s design engineers where cost, performance and manufacturability are paramount. AeroWave materials can be fabricated using standard FR-4 printed circuitry fabrication processes, are well suited for use in hybrid multilayer printed circuit configurations and are compatible for use in lead-free assembly processes.

AeroWave low-loss (0.0028 @ 10 GHz) controlled dielectric constant material (+/- 0.05) is available in a broad range of nominal cores and pre-preg.  In addition, this new material exhibits exceptional dimensional stability, chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and copper peel strength. Passive inter-modulation (PIM) performance values exceeding -160 dBc are typical (RTF and VLP type copper foils). AeroWave laminate is available now as AeroWave -300, AeroWave-338, AeroWave -350.

Decreasing Bend Radius and Improving Reliability- Part II

11/22/2019 | Kelsey Smith, All Flex
Many of the issues that arise when using a flex circuit come from a lack of knowledge about how to properly design one, especially when the circuit is required to bend. Many novices will design a circuit that calls for bending the flex in too tight of a bend radius, which can cause damage to the circuit and lower the reliability of the end product. This series of articles will focus on the seven key aspects to consider when designing for maximum durability and maximum “flexibility”.
