Amphenol Invotec Gains UL Approval for I-Tera MT

Reading time ( words)

Amphenol Invotec Ltd has gained approval from Underwriters Laboratories for I-Tera MT, a very low-loss laminate developed for high-speed applications. 

I-Tera MT laminate materials exhibit exceptional electrical properties which are very stable over a broad frequency and temperature range.

Featuring a dielectric constant (Dk) that is stable between -55°C and +125°C up to 20 GHz, they are suitable for many of today’s high speed digital and RF/microwave printed circuit designs.

They also offer a lower dissipation factor (Df) of 0.0035, making them a cost-effective alternative to PTFE and other commercial microwave and high-speed digital laminate materials.

Amphenol Invotec have already successfully used I-Tera MT on a number of customer sequential lamination and stacked microvia designs, including LDI solder mask defined micro BGAs.

Time, Space, Structure, and Model Analysis of CCL Price Increase

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.
