PCB Fabrication for Microwave Laminates (esp. Rogers)

Discussion in 'CAD' started by Lord Labakudas, Jun 6, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    Are there any good PCB fabrication facilities for Rogers 3xxxx, 4xxx,
    5xxx and RT/duroid boards ? Almost all the search results I got with
    Google use FR-4 laminates only. We have a lot of boards to be printed
    on Rogers laminates, but we couldn't find a single facility so far.
    Any suggestions for a Fab facility that works on a wide variety of
    microwave laminates (not necessarily Rogers) will also work for us.

    We are ready to provide the boards ourselves if the need arises.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Vijay.

  4. Lord,
    For Rogers 4xxx laminate there is no special processing
    involved. R4XXX can be processed by anybody that is doing FR-4
    laminates.
    For the other Rogers laminates I would try the following
    fabricators. I do not warrant the quality of their work or any
    other aspect of their operations. Except for Hallmark, which has
    always exceeded my expectations and requirements but you pay for
    it. To find others, search for Microwave PCBs typically turns up
    a bunch of suppliers. Also try contacting the laminate
    manufacturers to find a listing of their fabricators using
    particular laminates.

  5. Not the laminate.. but I hope you realise some Rogers material isn't
    fireproof.. you therefore can't get UL or EN6950 unless its fully enclosed
    in metal... in fact.. some of the material actually burns rather nicely :)
