Reading time ( words)

Ventec International, a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs, is participating at the 2017 DesignCon show in Santa Clara, California, USA from 31st January to 2nd February as both an exhibitor on booth #118 and technical presenter. The presentation will unveil the industry's most advanced ultra-low Dk PCB materials for high-speed low-loss applications. 

Ventec will be participating at DesignCon 2017, the premier conference for chip, board, and systems design engineers, on booth #118 and has specifically chosen the event as the ideal platform to unveil the industry's latest advances in PCB materials for high-speed low-loss applications. Ventec's Martin Cotton (Director - OEM Technology Marketing) and Bill Wang (Technical Director) will be presenting their paper titled "Ultra-Low Dk PCB Materials for High-Speed Low-Loss Applications" in Ballroom F on Wednesday, 1st February at 8:00am. 

The technical presentation will demonstrate how lower losses and lower system power requirements are realized by using an ultra-low Dk material with Dk values between 2.3 and 2.8.

"By lowering the material Dk to ultra-low levels using FR4 processes, the delicate balance of performance and cost is achieved", said Martin Cotton. "Higher layer counts on backplanes, daughter cards and hand-held's are achieved in a smaller footprint by having smaller layer to layer separation without sacrificing trace width. Having potentially wider traces produces lower resistance in the signal path" he continues. "Combining ultra-low Dk with a low Df of 0.002 to 0.004, produces an alternative to ever smaller traces and higher power requirements."
