Reading time ( words)

Park Electrochemical Corp. announced the introduction of M-Ply, a prepreg designed specifically for Radio Frequency (RF)/digital hybrid bonding. M-ply is the newest member of the Meteorwave Family of materials, as well as the newest addition to Park’s line of Very Low Loss and Ultra Low Loss electronic materials. M-Ply is available globally in multiple fiberglass styles and resin contents. M-Ply is designed to perform very well in Multi-layer RF, Multifunction Antennae, 5G Antennae and Multi-layer PTFE applications.

M-Ply prepreg is very well suited for hybrid RF/digital constructions, including bonding PTFE to PTFE and PTFE to digital substrates. It enables combinations of RF circuitry and high speed digital circuitry on the same circuit board. M-Ply provides excellent bonding to PTFE substrates, has a T300 of greater than 120 minutes and offers very tight thickness control. M-Ply also meets NASA outgassing requirements.

M-Ply is a member of the UL-designated Meteorwave Family of materials. It has a UL 94V-0 designation and a 130°C MOT Rating. M-Ply meets IPC-4101/91 and /102 specifications, and is RoHS compliant.
