Blueshift presenting at IEEE International Microwave Symposium

June 19 – 23, 2022

Blueshift will be exhibiting and presenting at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) taking place in Denver on June 19-23.

Our presentation, Aerogel film as a Microwave Substrate, will focus on a new high-performance polyimide film offering 85 percent air content within a structure composed of a polyimide matrix, which could offer significant benefits to the printed circuit fabrication process.

This high air content material creates a substrate with excellent signal propagation properties and superior RF transparency. The combination of air content and structure delivers a processable material with exceptional microwave performance and processability using standard printed circuit fabrication techniques. We’ll be reviewing these differentiations, along with the processing capabilities, and applications.

The film has been added to the most recent revision of IPC-4202C (Specification for Flexible Base Dielectrics for Use in Flexible Printed Boards) which describes a novel, flexible base material comprised of a reticulated polyimide film. This standard establishes the classifications, qualification, and quality requirements for flexible base dielectric materials for use in the fabrication of flexible printed boards.
