For Millimeter-Wave Performance, Thinner Materials are Often Better

Thin can be a good thing for high-frequency circuit laminate materials. As this ROG Blog detailed some years ago (see “Thinner Materials Help Target Higher Frequencies,” http://mwexpert.typepad.com/rog_blog/2010/11/thinner-materials-help-target-higher-frequencies.html), thinner printed-circuit-board (PCB) laminates offer many electrical benefits as well as mechanical advantages compared to thicker circuit materials, especially at higher frequencies reaching into millimeter-wave bands. For applications where...
