Your Expert RF PCB And MicrowavePCB Manufacturer
RF PCB (also named Radio frequency PCB or Radio frequency printed circuit board)and Microwave PCB, is designed to operate high frequency signals with small wave length, surely related to radio frequency, The laminate materials for building RF PCB and Microwave PCB are with very specific characteristics, such as dielectric constant (Er), loss tangent, and CTE (co-efficient of thermal expansion), these laminates have more advanced composites compare to normal FR-4 material.

In PCB industry, however, any high frequency PCBs that operates above 100MHz are considered as RF PCB( radio frequency PCB, RF print circuit board), and any PCB operates above 2GHz we call it a Microwave PCB.
Radio-frequency (RF) and microwave PCBs were firstly used in military applications, and then become more and more popular in a medical application such as wireless handheld equipment, and then in nowadays industrial applications such as advanced communications systems for base stations, radar, and global positioning products.

RF PCB and microwave PCB require special skills that your normal manufacturing (with standard PCB technology) partner may not be able to handle. We can properly design your RF PCB and microwave PCB projects with proper high-frequency laminates with tight turnarounds, provide detail information of material options and DFM considerations, and also produce with high-quality controls to ensure performance of your products life cycle.
IEEE standard designate RF(radio frequency) is from 20KHz to 300GHz, and Frequencies ≥ 1 GHz are called microwave(1MHz=1000KHz,1GHz=1000MHz), This is roughly between the upper limit—audio frequencies and the lower limit —infrared frequencies.
