Microwave circuits used in the printed circuit board (PCB) industry typically have two sources of heat: an active device placed on the PCB that’s generating heat and the circuit itself that’s heating because of RF power being applied. Both can present challenges. In this edition of Coonrod’s Corner, Rogers’ John Coonrod discusses thermal management of microwave PCBs. Tweet us your thoughts at @Rogers_ACM.
