Ventec’s Martin Cotton to Showcase Ultra-Low Dk PCB Materials for High-Speed Low-Loss Applications at DesignCon 2017


Reading time ( words)

Ventec International, a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs, is participating at the 2017 DesignCon show in Santa Clara, California, USA from 31st January to 2nd February as both an exhibitor on booth #118 and technical presenter. The presentation will unveil the industry's most advanced ultra-low Dk PCB materials for high-speed low-loss applications. 

Ventec will be participating at DesignCon 2017, the premier conference for chip, board, and systems design engineers, on booth #118 and has specifically chosen the event as the ideal platform to unveil the industry's latest advances in PCB materials for high-speed low-loss applications. Ventec's Martin Cotton (Director - OEM Technology Marketing) and Bill Wang (Technical Director) will be presenting their paper titled "Ultra-Low Dk PCB Materials for High-Speed Low-Loss Applications" in Ballroom F on Wednesday, 1st February at 8:00am. 

The technical presentation will demonstrate how lower losses and lower system power requirements are realized by using an ultra-low Dk material with Dk values between 2.3 and 2.8.

"By lowering the material Dk to ultra-low levels using FR4 processes, the delicate balance of performance and cost is achieved", said Martin Cotton. "Higher layer counts on backplanes, daughter cards and hand-held's are achieved in a smaller footprint by having smaller layer to layer separation without sacrificing trace width. Having potentially wider traces produces lower resistance in the signal path" he continues. "Combining ultra-low Dk with a low Df of 0.002 to 0.004, produces an alternative to ever smaller traces and higher power requirements."

In 1980, about 90% of the materials used to make PCBs was FR-4. As time went by, technology developed, and electronic devices relentlessly integrated into every area of our lives. The constant acceleration of upgrading meant endless challenges and opportunities for CCL suppliers. Wazam New Material Co. Ltd. is a CCL supplier that strives to be attentive to the needs of its end customers and provide comprehensive solutions. One example is the mini backlight unity (MBLU) application material.

Engineering RF Dielectric Material to Enable 5G/6G Antenna Devices

04/11/2022 | Chudy Roosevelt Nwachukwu, ITEQ Corporation
Accurate characterization of frequency-dependent inhomogeneous dielectric material properties is key to the optimal design of high performance and cost-effective PCB antennas. These antennas will be required to enable the plethora of devices forecasted for 5G/6G communication. Therefore IT-88GMW, an advanced resin system reinforced with tightly woven thin glass fibers has been formulated to improve the Q-factor of interconnects and passive components fabricated on PCB laminates.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

03/31/2022 | Jeff Brandman, Aismalibar North America
Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.
