Ceramic materials for printed high-frequency electronics
Ceramic substrate materials and adapted thick-film pastes and inks can make a significant contribution to realizing future 6G and millimeter wave radar applications. Read our latest white paper for more information.
Mobile communication technology is less than 25 years old and has already taken several decisive steps in its development. New wireless communication standards are released on a regular basis and achieve ever higher transmission rates. UMTS is gradually being replaced first by 4G and finally, at present, by 5G. Due to the wide frequency spectrum of the 5G standard, in particular machine networking and digital images of reality can be generated, in addition to mobile radio applications. The computing power and storage capacity required for this are available in high market readiness. But for applications such as autonomous driving, much higher data rates are needed. The global goal is to increase the data rate from 20 gigabits per second at a latency of 1 millisecond (5G) to a full 1 terabit per second at a latency of just 0.1 millisecond (6G) by 2030. Ceramic substrate materials and adapted thick-film pastes and inks can make a significant contribution here. Read our latest white paper for more information.
