The Rogers PCB Ro4350B high frequency PCB

Basically, Rogers Corporation is the company that manufactures the laminate materials to be used in high-frequency circuit boards for high functioning gadgets.

Nearly all the circuit boards are made of Flame Retardant level 4 or FR4 materials which is a glass fiber and mix of epoxy composite laminated with copper foil on one or both sides.

Rogers sells the FR-4 core with copper laminates for the PCB, most importantly for the cores to have better frequency properties.
In some cases, they are even expensive than the fiberglass but less glossy at high frequencies which makes it ordinary for the RF circuit boards.

The Rogers PCBs are quite different from the general standard PCB and the reason is they have no glass fiber in the middle and mostly are ceramic-based.


Features of Rogers PCB

The basic difference between Rogers PCB and ordinary PCB states for the high-frequency PCB used in heavy industrial purposes or applications.

The quality outperforms than the general PCB and it is trusted by many people to use in complex and crucial purposes.
The distinctive features that have made it extra-ordinary include:

  • The application where Rogers PCBs can be used for microwave point to point, RF identification tags, automotive radar and sensors, and power amplifiers
  • It is composed with woven glass reinforced hydrocarbon
  • High-resolution electrical performance has close interaction to PTEE
  • A thin layer of conductive materials are used in PCBs to give it strength and power

The best quality and better usage criteria and features are the most obvious reasons because the other alternatives can barely supportive of such issues.
This high-frequency Rogers PCB has several benefits.

  • High quality ensures low electrical signal loss
  • Lower dielectric failure
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Better management for thermal energy
  • A wide array of dielectric constant values
  • Lower outgassing is suitable for space applications
  • Advanced impedance control
  • Suitable for RF circuit boards
  • Extremely reliable and available for use in major industries
  • High frequency assures the suitability  to use in mobile networking and aerospace
Repair of Printed circuit board


Comparison between Ordinary and Rogers PCB

The key differences are found at the usage of ordinary and Rogers PCB:

Rogers PCBs are widely used in high-frequency applications whereas ordinary PCBs cannot serve properly in high frequencies

Rogers PCBs are the least in absorbing water compared to the ordinary PCBs

Rogers PCBs can be used in harsh environmental conditions and ideal for use in aerospace and defense ,

but ordinary PCBs are more appropriate to use in low exhausting areas like standard switchboards.

Reasons to Choose Rogers PCB

Rogers PCBs can be trusted as there are lesser products to serve at its level in conventional PCBs.

Fields like aerospace do not have many options to choose Rogers PCBs considering the design and quality.

It is also reliable in terms of their service criteria because they offer samples so that anyone can understand the effectiveness and efficiency before finalizing.
This puts ease among the customers to choose Rogers PCB.

The moisture absorption feature is not served by the ordinary PCBs which is also a reason for Rogers PCBs increasing popularity.

These characteristics are appropriate for being used in every kind of environment and weather conditions by ensuring lesser chances of malfunctions.

In addition, Rogers PCB is resistant to several types of chemicals so that it can be used in almost all the industries without any pressure.

The communication infrastructure, aerospace, defense, medical, rail industry, mobile applications, and HEV are a few industries and these are the prime markets for using Rogers PCB.
