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.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 3: Design Tool Techniques

08/23/2019 | Ed Hickey and Mike Catrambone, Cadence Design Systems, and Joan Tourné, Nextgin Technology
New vertical conductive structure (VeCS) technology can reduce layer count and improve signal integrity without the need for sequential technologies. VeCS is different than traditional through-hole vias, microvias, and ELIC designs, which are more expensive and require a high number of laminations, drilling, and plating cycles to build up a reasonable number of layers.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Avoiding CAF Failures at the IPC High-reliability Forum

12/31/1969 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Foresite CEO Terry Munson recently spoke with Andy Shaughnessy during the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore about his presentation on the causes of conductive anodic filament (CAF), the dangers of resin starvation, and what advice he'd give to PCB designers to avoid those types of failures.
