Application of RT / Duroid 6006:

Locomotive, rail transit, electric power, renewable energy, body and chassis, lighting, equipment and inverter power supply, national defense industrial equipment, on-board, on-board communication, on-board entertainment, Internet of vehicles, industrial automation, industrial servo, indoor lighting, smart home, industrial equipment control, mobile phone related, electric vehicle power system, communication equipment, Internet of things, storage, safety system, patch antenna, satellite communication system, power amplifier, aircraft anti-collision system, Ground radar early warning system,


The two dielectric constants of RT/duroid 6006 are manufacturing process (6.15) and design (6.45). Design dielectric constant 6.45 is chosen for circuit simulation.

If the dielectric constant of the bonded sheet is required, it is recommended to use RO3006 bonded sheet with a minimum thickness of 5 mil (0.127 mm). If there is no requirement for the dielectric constant of the bonded sheet, it has a thickness of 1.5mil (0.038mm), such as 2929.

The antenna gain is related to the dielectric loss and copper foil loss of the RT/duroid 6010 PCB material. An increase in both losses will reduce the gain index of the entire antenna. Due to the high frequency, copper foil loss plays a dominant role. For example, there are scratches and stains on the copper foil surface and the dielectric surface, so the scratches on the antenna transmission microstrip line and the dielectric stain at the port will increase the loss and reduce the gain. These are mainly related to the PCB processing process.


RT/duroid 6010 PCB material is polytetrafluoroethylene with a small amount of ceramic powder added, and the texture is relatively soft. If the surface dielectric and copper foil are damaged, it is equivalent to increasing the loss of the dielectric and copper foil, which will reduce the antenna gain. In order to improve the antenna yield, the PCB processing process must prohibit any mechanical grinding or friction on the PTFE dielectric surface after copper foil etching to protect the roughness of the dielectric surface after etching. After processing, chemical cleaning is required to ensure that the surface is free of stains. Confirm PCB processing During the process, attention should be paid to protecting the surface roughness of the copper foil and the surface of the dielectric to improve the antenna yield.

Rogers' 6010 series of high-frequency PCB materials used to have three models, 6010.2LM, 6010.5LM and 6010.8LM, but the latter two have been discontinued one after another, and 6010.2LM is now recommended.
