ITEQ Launches IT-988G


Reading time ( words)

ITEQ Corporation has introduced its next generation halogen-free low-loss product for ultrahigh-speed signal transmission. The product is available in two formats, as IT-988G with E-Glass, and IT-988GSE with low Dk Glass. At 28 Ghz, the typical Dk and DF for IT-988G (at 60% resin content) are 3.46 and 0.0025, respectively, while the typical Dk and DF for IT-988GSE are 3.28 and 0.0016, respectively. Both products will be available with ultralow profile copper. The glass transition temperature is in excess of 230° C and the product has very low expansion at ~2.5% (50-260° C range). Initial signal integrity tests on industry standard test vehicles show a 38 -50% lower insertion loss in a side-by-side comparison to incumbent competitive products with similar glass and copper.  

Tarun Amla, Chief Technology Officer and EVP, noted, “IT-988G and IT-988GSE are first mover products that promise to enable higher than 56 Gbps per channel. This ultralow-loss product provides the market with a great option for building the high transmission rate technologies of the future. The attributes have been carefully tailored to make sure that the products can be seamlessly adopted into existing processes and platforms. It is our endeavor at ITEQ to be first to market with the best-in-class products and this is the latest manifestation of that philosophy.”

The product will be manufactured in ITEQ’s state-of-the-art facility in Taiwan and distributed globally. It is available for signal integrity sampling and building test vehicles with customers.
