Radio Frequency and microwave PCBs are a special and innovative type of PCB designated to operate on signals in the megahertz to gigahertz frequency ranges (medium frequency to extremely high frequency). These frequency ranges are used for communication signals in everything from smartphones to military radars.
Very specific materials and technology that are not available to many factories are required to build this PCB equipment. The ICAPE Group, with 50 key partners in Asia and more than 20 years of experience in the PCB industry, can provide the best services from the quotation to worldwide shipping.

With the advancement of electronic technology, the requirement of consumers and factories are more demanding every day. The PCB manufacturers must significantly increase the capacities of their products to accommodate this progress and always to provide more potential to the R&D departments. The modern Radiofrequency/Microwave boards are pushing the limits of contemporary electronics.
The materials used to construct these PCBs are advanced composites with very specific characteristics:
- Thermal Expansion coefficient (CTE)
- Dielectric Constant and thermal Coefficient
- Smoother Copper / Material Surface Profile
- Thermal conductivity
- Mixt Stack-up Material
Speed and adapted impedance
The low loss tangent and stability allows high frequency signals to travel through the PCB as fast rates, and with less impedance.
Reduced Costs and optimal performance
The materials can be combined in the board stack-up, ensuring reduced PCB assembly coasts alors with optimal PCB performance
PCB structure is extremely stable in high temperature environments. If used un analog applications, these PCB’s can operate at 40 GHz
Fine pitch components can be placed onto the board effectively without too much trouble.
Due to the use of low CTE materials, it is easier for a PCB engineer to align multiple board layers in complex layouts.
Since 1999, ICAPE Group developed a strong relationship with the factories to trade the best prices and a perfect knowledge of the manufacturing processes to ensure the highest level of quality. To be sure of our products, we test the boards in our own laboratory, located in China with highly skilled experts. With its 370 employees in 17 Business Units worldwide, ICAPE Group gives you the global answer to your printed circuit board needs from the quotation to the shipping.
