Taconic’s superior coating capabilities have enabled them to produce RF-35A, which offers distinct performance advantages.
RF-35A has all of the benefits that you have come to expect from the RF-35 product line, including excellent copper peel strength for rework and reliability and low moisture absorption for fewer bakes and lower cost during processing.
The dielectric constant tolerance has been tightened to 3.5 +/- 0.05 which translates to more consistent electrical performance.
RF-35A offers low X, Y and Z thermal expansion for better mechanical properties.
Taconic has raised thermal conductivity in RF-35A which enables higher power handling capability.
The construction of the RF-35A allows for easier drilling.
The enhanced electrical and mechanical properties of RF- 35A make it ideal for power amplifier applications, filters, couplers and RF applications.
RF-35A laminates are generally ordered clad on both sides with 1/2, 1 or 2 oz. electrodeposited copper. RF-35A laminates exhibit flammability of V-0 and are tested in accordance with IPC-TM 650. A certificate of conformance containing lot-specific data accompanies each shipment.
