January 29, 2014. Anritsu at DesignCon announced its VectorStar vector network analyzer (VNA) served in a workshop conducted by technologists from DuPont Circuit & Packaging Materials (booth #719) and Rogers Corp. (booth #720). The workshop on understanding the properties of low-loss materials in high-frequency applications included live demonstrations in which the VectorStar conducted various tests on thin, flexible materials from DuPont and thick, rigid materials from Rogers.
Workshop presenters were Glenn Oliver, senior engineer, DuPont Circuit & Packaging Materials, and John Coonrod, market development manager, Rogers Corp. The two engineers are the chair and vice-chair, respectively, of the IPC D-24C Task Group, which is focused on developing and standardizing high-frequency measurement methods for printed circuit board (PCB) materials.
At DesignCon 2014, DuPont is highlighting DuPont Pyralux flexible circuit materials as part of its product portfolio that enables next-generation designs for computers, handheld devices, and the infrastructure that connects the cloud. DuPont Circuit & Packaging Materials offers a portfolio of products, including dry film photoresists and phototooling films for printed circuit board (PCB) imaging, polyimide films, flexible circuit materials, embedded passive materials and thermal substrates for LED lighting.
