Wireless/RF and broadband technologies are driving the need for advanced transmission systems. This joint project with IPC was organized to develop a better understanding of current materials and novel material sets under development, with the objective of determining limitations with respect to future needs of 2 to 38 GHz. The project team catalogued existing materials and created a Microsoft Excel database of more than 120 laminates, searchable by attribute. The group also tested materials to determine electrical characteristics, using a common method of testing for electrical performance. Project work was completed in 2004.
