Typical applications for these materials include advanced commercial and military electronics such as avionics, semiconductor testing, heat sink bonding, high-density interconnect, and microvia PCBs (i.e. in mobile communication products).
Arlon microwave materials specialize in fluoropolymers (i.e. PTFE), ceramic-filled fluoropolymers, and low loss ceramic hydrocarbon thermoset laminates that deliver the electrical performance needed in frequency-dependent circuit applications. Examples include base station antennas, phased array radars, power amplifier boards, communications systems, and various other antenna applications.
Another Arlon product to note is a lower loss version of CLTE — called CLTE-XT — which has the lowest loss, lowest thermal expansion, highest phase stability, and lowest moisture absorption of any product in its class.
