Flame retardant Hydrocarbon laminate for power amplifiers

HF-350F is a flame retardant, ceramic-filled hydrocarbon based copper clad laminate reinforced with woven fiberglass. The special ceramic-filled hydrocarbon composite offers low signal loss and distortion with controlled impedance in broadband applications.|Traditional thermoset laminates can degrade over time by oxidation with time and elevated temperatures. Oxidation is permanent and leads to a shift toward a higher dielectric constant, elevated loss values, and changing color. The impact of shifting dielectric properties depends on circuit design, operating power, and use temperature. HF-350F has been developed with much better resistance to oxidation.|HF-350F has been designed with a high thermal conductivity of 0.69 W/m*K to reduce operating temperatures. The combination of high thermal conductivity and low dissipation factor result in composite that shows exceptional reliability and environmental stability over time and temperature.
