High Q and Low Loss Tangent

Today's wireless communications and collision avoidance systems demand superior antenna performance with very low loss. This requires a support material with low Dielectric and Loss Tangent properties.

Our unique design and manufacturing capabilities enable antenna designers to generate radiative antenna structures with dielectric constants as low as 1.5.

Tailorable dielectric performance ranging from 1.5 to 6.4 is realized by integrating radiative metal patterns on a matrix of glass and air. Designs are optimized for Dk, loss tangent, and environmental durability in the field.
