White Paper: Thermosets’ Cost and Reliability Advantages for Automotive Radar PCBs

Abstract: The car radar market for safety and driver assistance applications is exploding, and the critical mass makes the choice of PCB materials a key consideration amid the crucial importance of cost and reliability factors that are intrinsically linked to the automotive environment. Automakers are looking beyond PTFE and highly-filled hydrocarbon resins – traditionally used in high frequency millimeter wave applications – to lower the cost of built-in vehicle radars and ensure their reliable operation at elevated temperatures.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.

Flex Time: Why is Rigid-Flex So Expensive?

07/11/2018 | Bob Burns, PRINTED CIRCUITS
One question that I hear fairly often, particularly after an initial quotation, is “Why is rigid-flex so expensive?” In this article, I’ll share with designers the cost drivers in rigid-flex relative to standard rigid boards and flex circuits with stiffeners. A typical rigid-flex PWB will cost about seven times the cost of the same design on a hard board, and two to three times an equivalent flex circuit with stiffeners.
