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.
