Park Electrochemical Unveils Extremely Low-Loss Material


Reading time ( words)

Park Electrochemical Corp. has introduced Meteorwave 8000, Park’s newest high-speed, extremely low-loss digital and RF electronics material. Meteorwave 8000 is designed for high layer-count printed circuit boards which require the highest levels of reliability. Meteorwave 8000 features a typical loss (Df) of .0016 at 10GHz and is intended for use in 56Gbs to 112Gbs applications, including core routers, high-speed switches, supercomputers, 5G infrastructure and other applications where low signal attenuation, high reliability and high data transfer rates are critical.

Meteorwave 8000 is available globally in multiple laminate thicknesses, from 0.0012” and up, and is compatible with ultra-low-profile copper. Meteorwave 8000 has a UL 94V-0 designation and a 130°C MOT rating. It meets IPC-4101/102 specifications, and is RoHS-compliant.

Park Electrochemical Corp. is a global advanced materials company which develops and manufactures advanced composite materials, primary and secondary structures and assemblies and low-volume tooling for the aerospace markets and high-technology digital and RF/microwave printed circuit materials principally for the telecommunications and internet infrastructure, enterprise and military markets. The company’s manufacturing facilities are located in Kansas, Singapore, France, Arizona and California. The company also maintains R&D facilities in Arizona, Kansas and Singapore.

Additional corporation information is available on the company’s website.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.

PCB Reliability: Via Design

07/12/2019 | Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly
When considering the long-term reliability of a PCB, you must take into account any vias on your board. While an invaluable and essential part of board design, vias introduce weaknesses and affect solderability. This article will discuss vias, the potential concerns that are introduced into your board through their implementation, and how to minimize those concerns to acceptable levels.
