RF – Radio Frequency PCBs

PCB Portfolio

RF – Radio frequency

Radio frequency (RF) PCBs and microwave (MW) circuits can be found in wireless products from handheld devices for medical and industrial applications to advanced communications systems for base stations, radar and global positioning.

NCAB works close with your product design team to insure that the project’s cost/performance targets can be met by providing information on material options, relative costs and DFM considerations.

When producing radio frequency PCBs it is important to think about how to control the signals using (i) materials types and material characteristics (loss tangent / Df and dielectric constant / Dk) (ii) low profile copper foils (iii) weave styles and (iv) how we layout the copper circuitry, as all of these factories have a significant impact on the the performance of the finished product.

Please contact your local NCAB Group company if you need further information or assistance, we are happy to help you.
