     High-frequency PCB for Millimeter Wave Automotive Radar

    5G and mobile travel are products of the deep integration of the automotive industry with new generation information technologies such as communication, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing of the IoTs. They are the main directions for the intelligent and networked development of the global automotive and transportation fields. The autonomous vehicle equipped with 5G technology can achieve safer driving and more comfortable riding experience. Faster 5G signal transmission will give the vehicle system more time to provide feedback and processing, thereby ensuring driving safety and providing a more efficient driving experience.

    The main application in autonomous driving is millimeter wave radar sensors, which mainly use materials such as RO3003G2TM, RO3003TM, RO4830TM, CLTE-MWTM, etc. They are widely used in 77GHz millimeter wave radar and have very stable dielectric constant and ultra-low dissipation factor (a dissipation factor of 0.001 is commonly tested at 10 GHz). At the same time, the structure without glass fiber further reduces the variation of local dielectric constant in the millimeter wave frequency band, Eliminating the fiberglass effect of the signal further increases the phase stability of the radar sensor.

    With the development of radar sensors in the 79 GHz frequency band (77-81 GHz), their wider signal bandwidth can further improve the resolution of radar sensors, increase scanning angles, and even achieve 4D imaging.

    Specification parameter table of (Rogers)RO3003™ High-frequency PCB

    (Rogers) RO3003™ High frequency substrates are PTFE composite materials filled with ceramics, used for PCBs in commercial microwave and RF applications. The unique design endows the material with stability and eliminates the step change in dielectric constant of general-purpose PTFE materials at room temperature.

    Rogers RO3003™ High frequency substrates still have stable dielectric constants (Dk: 0.00+/-0.04) and dissipation factor (Df: 0.0010 at 10GHz ) at different temperatures and frequencies. Very suitable for applications such as automotive millimeter wave radar (77 GHz), advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) and 5G wireless infrastructure (millimeter wave).

    RO3003™ substrate has excellent mechanical stability, making it convenient for designers to use materials with different dielectric constants in a single-layer circuit when designing multi-layer circuits without warping or reliability issues.  The thermal expansion coefficient of RO3003™ substrate in the X/Y direction is 17/16 (ppm/℃). This value is equivalent to the thermal expansion coefficient of copper, so the typical value of etching shrinkage (baking after etching) of the material is less than 0.5mils/inch, demonstrating excellent dimensional stability. The CTE in the Z direction is 25 (ppm/℃), and even in harsh temperature environments, this material can still ensure the stability of electroplated through holes.
