Polymer dielectrics for 3D-printed RF devices in the Ka band
May 6, 2016
Direct-write printing allows the fabrication of centimeter-wave radio devices. Most polymer dielectric polymer materials become lossy at frequencies above 10 GHz. Presented here is a printable dielectric material with low loss in the K a band (26.5–40 GHz). This process allows the fabrication of resonator filter devices and a radio antenna.
