Material Notes:
RO3730™ Laminates have the excellent thermo-mechanical properties and electrical characteristics that antenna designers need. The laminates have a dielectric constant of 3.0 and a loss tangent of 0.0013 measured at 2.5 GHz. These values allow antenna designers to realize substantial gain values while minimizing signal loss. Materials are available with a demonstrated low PIM performance, with values better than -154 dBc (measured using Rogers' internal test method).Cladding is 1 ounce rolled annealed copper (35 microns thick).Features and Benefits:RO3730 reinforced woven fiber glass with optimized glass and filler loading - Improved mechanical rigidity, easier handling and processing versus non-reinforced PTFE products and lower dissipation factorLow PIM - reduced signal interferenceLoss - improved antenna gainEconomically priced - volume manufacturingEnvironmentally friendly - Lead-free process compatible and RoHS compliantTypical Applications:Base station antennasRFID antennasWLAN antennasSatellite Radio antennasInformation provided by Rogers Corporation.
