If you’re looking for a primer on what Design Dk (dielectric constant) is, then look no further. John Coonrod shares a presentation about Design Dk and what it’s all about. Circuit design and modeling is a highly complicated process. There are different test methods and as John notes, each have their pros and cons. John shares some of the methodology he uses to define a consistent Dk value for Rogers high frequency laminates used in printed circuit boards (PCBs) and other microwave electronics.
The presentation covers:
- What is meant by Design Dk, Specification Dk and Process Dk
- Publishing the Design Dk
- Test methods
- Design Dk test method defined
- Supporting documentation
