Hydrocarbon laminate for microstrip/stripline antenna

HF-340 is a ceramic-filled hydrocarbon-based copper clad laminate reinforced with woven fiberglass. The special ceramic-filled hydrocarbon composite offers low signal loss and superior, stable PIMD performance in microwave antenna applications. HF-340 can be fabricated using standard FR-4 PCB fabrication without special hole wall preparation. The low CTE values enable reliable hybrid multilayer constructions. HF-340 is a highly engineered composite designed to meet the demands of high volume RF / microwave applications.
