Isola Group (Chandler, AZ) announced that it has begun alpha testing of Tachyon, its new ultra-low loss product that is engineered to reduce insertion loss on high-peed digital designs. It is specifically being targeted for high-layer count backplanes for the growing 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) market that has channel data rates in excess of 25 Gbps. Features include:
- A nominal dielectric constant (Dk) of 3.02 that is stable between -55°C and +125°C up to 40 GHz.
- A low dissipation factor (Df) of 0.0021.
- Spread glass and reduced-profile copper to mitigate skew and improve rise times, reduce jitter, increase eye width and height.
