Low-K vs. High-K Dielectric PCB Substrate Materials

Your PCB substrate materials are a major determinant of many aspects of performance. In any real operating environment, you’ll need to make several compromises to ensure your next board operates as intended. The PCB substrate materials industry has spent a significant amount of time engineering PCB core and laminate materials with a variety of material properties, weave styles, bonding resin content, and dielectric properties. Anyone designing on a standard PCB substrate will have plenty of laminate and core material options for use in their next board.
