FERRO ELECTRONIC MATERIALS: LTCC Materials

April 13, 2012

This company has expanded its low-temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) portfolio with a new line of matched materials. The L8 LTCC product line will be introduced at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2012, which will take place May 8-10 in Nuremberg, Germany.

The new L8 LTCC system reportedly features superior dielectric properties that can provide lower loss than competitive, price-sensitive LTCC products. L8 can perform well at up to 40 GHz and its reduced loss can enable manufacturers to design and build more energy-efficient parts that consume less power. The L8 system is suitable for cost-sensitive low- to mid-frequency telecommunications, automotive, and medical modules, components, and sensors as well as higher frequency aerospace, satellite, and other high reliability applications. The lead-free glass-ceramic formulation reportedly also provides very high strength and may be used in wire-bond, solderable, brazable, and plateable applications. The L8 system is RoHS compliant.
