What’s RF PCB?

RF is the abbreviation of high-frequency alternating electromagnetic waves. According to Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetic fields, an oscillating electric field produces an oscillating magnetic field, and an oscillating magnetic field produces an oscillating electric field. Electromagnetic fields propagate outward in space, forming electromagnetic waves. gps pcb antenna

RF PCB: A high-frequency PCB made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE PCB), ceramic-filled fluoropolymer, or ceramic-filled hydrocarbon thermoset with improved dielectric properties. The material has a low dielectric constant of 2.0-3.8, a low loss factor, and excellent low-loss characteristics, but also has good properties, a high glass transition temperature, very low hydrophilicity, and excellent thermal stability. The coefficient of expansion of PTFE PCB materials is similar to that of copper, giving the material excellent dimensional stability.

Typically, radio frequency (RF) is a collective term for electromagnetic waves with oscillation frequencies between 300KHZ-300GHz and is widely used in radar and wireless communications.

Applications of RF Microwave PCBs
