Mektec's new MPI FPC for high speed transmission applications
Updated: Oct 7, 2021
We are proud to announce our new "MPI" FPC for high speed transmission applications.
High Speed Transmission FPCs are an essential technology to developing devices that will support 5th Generation High Speed Communication Standard (5G). 5G is getting attention as a communication technology that enables high speed, high capacity, multiple simultaneous connections, with low signal delay. When transmitting, FPCs become the transmission line, meaning FPCs need specialized materials with dielectric properties that minimize transmission loss. Mektec's LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) FPCs already support such properties however, had flexibility and cost challenges.
In combining MPI and low dielectric adhesives, Mektec has successfully realized transmission properties that are similar to LCP FPC. Additionally, Mektec's MPI FPC was successful in achieving higher resistance to bending and heat compared with LCP FPC. By combining the newly developed structure with versatile materials, Mektec plans to offer MPI FPCs at a competitive price.
