Rogers 5880 loss tangent(2)

Attenuation (dB/cm) = 8.686 x f x tan(delta) x d

where f is the frequency in GHz, delta is the loss tangent, and d is the thickness of the material in cm.

For example, if you are designing a microstrip transmission line using Rogers 5880 with a thickness of 0.5 mm and a frequency of 10 GHz, the attenuation would be:

Attenuation (dB/cm) = 8.686 x 10 x 0.002 x 0.05 = 0.0087 dB/cm

This calculation can help you determine the performance of the circuit and make adjustments to improve it, such as changing the thickness of the material or using a different substrate with a lower loss tangent.
