iNEMI 5G/mmWave Materials Assessment and Characterization Project, Phase 1

Call-for-Participation Webinar

June 4 & 5, 2020

Next-generation 5G communications solutions require ultra-low loss laminate materials and PCBs/substrates for efficient design and manufacturing. However, there are many different approaches for measuring transmission loss, or Df/Dk, for these materials, especially for higher frequencies (e.g., 30-100 GHz). A standardized methodology would benefit the industry by enabling faster development of materials and design solutions.

This new iNEMI project plans to develop guidelines/best practices for a measurement and test methodology that can be shared with industry and relevant standards organizations. Initial focus will be to benchmark current available test methods, identify gaps (if any) for extending test methods to 5G/mmWave frequencies, and develop reliable reference standard materials for set-up and calibration.
