Next-generation 5G communications solutions require ultra-low loss laminate materials and PCBs/substrates for efficient design and manufacturing. However, there is no consistent methodology for characterizing these materials in the range of 5-100 GHz.

The goal of this project is to develop a guideline/best practice for a standardized measurement  and test methodology that can be shared with industry and relevant standards organizations. Initial focus will be to benchmark current available test methods and provide pro/con analysis, identify gaps (if any) for extending test methods to 5G/mmWave frequencies, as well as develop reliable reference standard materials for set-up and calibration.
