Rogers PCB is a type of high-frequency board that raw material is produced by Rogers company. It is different from the conventional PCB board—epoxy resin (FR4). It has no glass fiber in the middle and uses a ceramic base as the high-frequency material. Rogers has superior dielectric constant and temperature stability. Its dielectric constant thermal expansion coefficient is very consistent with copper foil, which can be used to improve the deficiencies of PTFE substrates. It is very suitable for high-speed electronic design, commercial microwave, and radio frequency applications. Its low water absorption is ideal for high-humidity applications, providing customers in the high-frequency board industry with the highest quality materials and related resources, which fundamentally enhance product quality.
When the circuit’s operating frequency is above 500MHz, the range of materials that design engineers can choose is significantly reduced. Rogers RO4350B material allows RF engineers to conveniently design circuits, such as network matching and impedance control of transmission lines. Due to its low dielectric loss characteristics, in high-frequency applications, RO4350B material has more advantages than ordinary circuit raw materials. Its dielectric constant with temperature fluctuation is almost the lowest among similar materials. In a wide frequency range, its dielectric constant is also relatively stable at 3.48; the recommended design value is 3.66. LoPra copper foil can reduce insertion loss, which makes the material suitable for broadband applications.

How is the PCB Manufacturing Process? Although PCBs are small, the manufacturing process of a PCB is quite extensive. Whether you want to make PCB by yourself or send it to a PCB manufacturer (e.g. PCBway, seeedstudio, etc), there are some crucial steps along with the development of the board. Because each step is so critical to the process, we will discuss in detail the manufacturing process of a PCB. Printed circuit boards are usually made with copper. Despite depending on the requirements, the copper is plated to a substrate and carved away to expose the design of the board. And because of multiple layers, they must be lined up and bonded together for a secure fit.
- Design. As discussed in previous sections, before you begin manufacturing the PCB, you need to have a design of the board. The design process is commonly produced by using computer software. And you can use a trace width calculator to help with a majority of the details needed for inner and external layers.
- Printing Design. In this step, you can use a special printer called a plotter printer to print the design of the PCB. This printer produces a film that shows the details and layers of the board. Once your design is printed, there will be two ink colors used on the inside layer of the board: Clear Ink to show the non-conductive areas; Dark Ink to show the conductive copper traces and circuits.
- Creating the Substrate. In this term substrate is the insulating material (epoxy resin and glass fiber) that holds the components on the structure. And in this step substrate begins forming by passing the materials through an oven to be semicured. Copper is pre-bonded to the two sides of the layer and afterward carved away to show the design from the printed films.
- Printing the Inner Layers. Then the design is printed to a laminate, the body of the structure. A photo-sensitive film is made from photo-reactive chemicals. It will harden when exposed to ultraviolet light (the resist) covers the structure. This will help adjust the blueprints and the genuine print of the board. Holes are drilled into the PCB to help with the adjustment process.
- Ultraviolet Light. When adjusted, the resist and laminate go under ultraviolet lights to solidify the photoresist. The light uncovers the pathways of copper. The dark ink from before forestalls solidifying in regions that will be removed later on. The board is then washed in an alkaline solution to expel the abundance photoresist.
- Removing Unwanted Copper. In this time to expel any undesirable copper that stayed on the board. A chemical solution, like the alkaline solution, destroys the undesirable copper. The solidified photoresist stays flawless.
- The recently cleaned layers should be investigated for alignment. The holes drilled earlier help adjust the inner and outer layers. An optical punch machine drills a pin through the holes to keep the layers arranged. After the optical punch, another machine will review the board to guarantee there are no deformities. From here on out, you will not be able to correct any missed errors.
How is the SMT Assembly Process? The process part after the PCB manufacturing process, of course, is components assembly. Since nowadays PCB manufacturer like PCBway is also able to do component assembly, in this section we will discuss in more details about the assembly process at the manufacturer.
Introduction to Surface Mount Technology. Surface Mount Technology is an area of electronic assembly used to mount electronic components to the surface of the printed circuit board (PCB) as contradiction embedding components through holes likewise with conventional assembly. SMT was created to diminish fabricating expenses and furthermore to utilize PCB space.
What are SMD’s? Surface mount device or SMD is the term utilized for the electronic components utilized within the surface mount assembly process. There is a wide scope of SMD component packages available on the market and come in numerous shapes and sizes
