What are the Most Common Products of Rogers PCB?
The Rogers PCB product range is very wide. Information about all materials can be found on the official website of the company. We will focus only on microwave materials, which have long proven themselves in our market and are actively used in various microwave applications.
RO3000 and RO3200 – PTFE and ceramic based laminates
The RO3000 and RO3200 series were the first Rogers materials developed for general use in the early 1990s. They have excellent high frequency electrical properties and high thermal stability and can be used at frequencies up to 30-40 GHz. These laminates are widely used in automotive (collision avoidance systems), satellite communication systems, GPS and wireless antennas, and cable data networks.
Low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) along the Z-axis provides increased reliability of plated holes. CTE along the X and Y axes are close to the same value for copper and fiberglass (FR-4), which makes it possible to use these laminates both for the production of multilayer printed circuit boards and hybrid assemblies. The glass-reinforced RO3200 series has greater mechanical strength than RO3000.
The RO3000 Series Includes:
RO3003 (Dk 3.00; Df 0.0010)
RO3035 (Dk 3.50; Df 0.0015)
RO3006 (Dk 6.15; Df 0.0020)
RO3010 (Dk 10.2; Df 0.0022)
The RO3200 series is represented by materials:
RO3203 (Dk 3.02; Df 0.0016)
RO3206 (Dk 6.6; Df 0.0027)
RO3210 (Dk 10.8; Df 0.0027)
RO4000 – Heat-Resistant Materials with Added Ceramics, Glass Fiber Reinforced
RO4000 Series Microwave roger pcb materials have been developed to, on the one hand, provide high-quality microwave characteristics similar to those of PTFE-based materials, and, on the other hand, to make it compatible with traditional processing technology of reinforced PCBs (FR-4). RO4000 materials are glass fiber reinforced with a high glass transition temperature (Tg> 280 ° C) filled with thermosetting polymer with the addition of ceramics.
What is the Grading System of Roger PCB Materials?
Unlike PTFE-based materials, RO4000 series materials do not require special chemical or plasma surface treatment in preparation for the production of plated vias. This makes the cost of manufacturing PCBs and mounting on RO4000 series microwave materials comparable to conventional epoxy laminates.
The most commonly used materials of this series: RO4003C and RO4350B – (Dk 3.38; Df 0.0027) and (Dk 3.48; Df 0.0037), respectively.
Special prepregs have been developed for these grades: RO4403C and RO4450B , which make it possible to create multilayer structures based on RO4003C and RO4350B materials, respectively. RO4403 prepreg has Dk 3.17 and Df 0.005, and refractory RO4450B prepreg has Dk 3.54 and Df 0.004. Like RO4000 materials, these prepregs are fully compatible with traditional FR4-based board technology.
What is the Function of RO4360G2 Series in Roger PCB Performance?
Another “advanced” material in this RO4360G2 series is heat-resistant, has an excellent thermal conductivity of 0.81 W / m / K, low CTE along the Z-axis, which increases the reliability of plated holes and simplifies drilling processes. It has Dk 6.15, is used in the manufacture of microwave electronics and allows operation at frequencies of 4 GHz. RO4360G2 is FR-4 compatible and offers the same reliability and consistency as RO4350B.
Laminates RO4835 (Dk 3.48, Df [email protected]
) and high frequency version RO4835T (Dk 3.33, Df [email protected]
) have been developed as an improved version of RO4350B. They have better stability at elevated temperatures and improved oxidation stability (10 times better than RO4350B).
Manufactured in the same configurations and thicknesses as the RO4350B and are IPC-4103 compliant. Applications: automotive radars and sensors, power amplifiers, phased array radars, RF components.
One of the company’s recent advances is the RO4000 LoPro laminate , which offers 10% lower insertion loss than the standard RO4000 series. Basically, these laminates are used in antenna systems, radars, digital data transmission roger pcb systems, as well as for the production of microwave components (especially power amplifiers).
RT / duroid6000 – PTFE Ceramic Laminates
There are several varieties of this type of material. Laminates RT / duroid6002 (Dk 2.94; Df 0.0012) and RT / duroid6202 (Dk 2.9; Df 0.0015) were developed in the late 1980s to address some of the shortcomings of PTFE-based materials.
The exceptional properties of these materials are the high stability of the dielectric constant in a wide temperature range and the coefficient of thermal expansion, which almost coincides with the CTE of roger pcb copper. All this makes these materials ideal for the manufacture of sandwich structures used in aerospace equipment subject to sudden changes in temperature, where there are strict requirements for the reliability of plated vias, and also requires low dielectric losses.
Ceramic Laminates for Roger PCB
This class also includes materials RT / duroid6006 and RT / duroid6010LM – ceramic PTFE laminates. The materials RT / duroid6006 (Dk 6.15; Df 0.0027) and 6010LM (Dk 10.2; Df 0.0023) were developed in the late 1970s with the aim of reducing the overall dimensions of printed circuit boards, since the high dielectric constant allows for smaller devices.
Thermal conductivity of RT / duroid 6035HTC laminate (Dk 3.5; Df 0.0013) is 2.4 times higher than that of standard RT / Duroid 6000 series models. Electrolytic foil, treated on the smooth side, which is resistant to high temperatures, allows the use of such laminate for high power amplifiers, combiners, power dividers, couplers and filters.
Thermal Testing of Microwave Boards
Results of thermal testing of a roger printed circuit board
Printed circuit board with copper base;
PCB material – Rogers;
The board is connected to the base using pressure glue;
Base thickness – 3 mm.
Test conditions and procedure:
Verification was carried out in accordance with standard tests for in-house manufactured instruments.
The thermal chamber is programmed for 3 cycles (1 cycle: -60 ° С… + 85 ° С with exposure for 30 minutes at each temperature). After 3 cycles, visual control was carried out using an MBS-10 microscope at a magnification of 16 × and 32 ×.
30 thermal cycles were carried out.
During the tests, no cracks, no delamination, no violations of the glue seam were revealed. A slight change in the color of the glue was observed (this is possible because the test sample was in a leaky volume). Conclusions based on the test results: the sample of the product corresponds to the declared properties in terms of the quality of the glue line.
How to Increase the Integration of Microcircuits of Roger PCB?
Multilayer rogers PCB has been designed to simplify and optimize the wiring of double-sided dielectric plates. The increase in the integration of microcircuits, the provision of a significant number of interlayer connections, as well as the introduction of packages with a large number of pins – all this became the primary reason for the creation and intensive development of MPP technologies.
As the roger pcb models and technological requirements become more complex, not only the quality has increased, but also the total number of layers. As a result, sophisticated multilayer printed circuit boards can have 30-32 layers.
Features of Use
MPP are used in high-frequency devices with a regulated impedance of signal circuits and an acceptable level of electromagnetic interference.
Among the main materials of multilayer rogers pcb boards are:
Rogers Ro4003 and Ro4350 series.
Glass fiber laminates FR4 prepreg
Combination is possible among base materials. For example: use in flexible-rigid printed circuit boards polyimide (PI) with FR-4 fiberglass.
The design is based on alternating thin dielectric layers combined with topology elements. When creating, the layers are connected into a single, integral multi-layer board.
Electrical connections, depending on the pressing technique, can have both through-type vias and interlayer vias:
Outer layers to inner layers – blind vias;
Inner layers are buried vias.
Any multilayer PCB construction consists of 2 elements:
Cores– core – a dielectric layer of considerable thickness foiled on both sides.
Preprega– prepreg – dielectric foil-clad on one side or not foil-clad layer of small thickness. It acts as a connecting internuclear layer.
Layer Classification of Multilayer Roger PCB
Another name is editing. The essence of the layer: the installation of components and the organization of connections between located in the immediate vicinity of the board elements
Presented in the form of solid polygons. They have minimal current resistance and low induction. Contributes to the shielding of signal layers.
You can create connections between electronic components. Feature: significant indicators of the density of communication lines
Excess heat of circuit components with increased technological values of heat release is removed and distributed
Combination of methods.
The main method is considered to be the method of pairwise pressing of nuclear blanks – thin double-sided boards of a certain topology. The method is implemented using cushioning glass fabric. Layer-by-layer build-up / metallization of core holes (through type) occur by a subtractive chemical method. Photoresists are used as a protective coating.

Where to Order Rogers PCB in China?
It is very important that all details and features are taken into account when designing and manufacturing a rogers PCB board. It is not possible to create a universal board that is suitable for all lighting applications, although if you are designing a board for use with secondary optics, then you can use the board without it. This will allow for some versatility.
However, more often for different series of luminaires, it will be necessary to make different boards, which will differ in materials, dimensions, the number of layers and installed elements, and in the complexity of the wiring.
PCBSKY has its own contract manufacturing and thanks to this we will develop a printed circuit board for you, taking into account the technological features of its installation.
