Standard Test Method for Relative Permittivity (Dielectric Constant) and Dissipation Factor of Polymer-Based Microwave Circuit Substrates
|Publication Date:||1 January 2010|
This test method permits the rapid measurement of apparent relative permittivity and loss tangent (dissipation factor) of metal-clad polymer-based circuit substrates in the X-band (8 to 12.4 GHz).
This test method is suitable for testing PTFE
NOTE 1-See Appendix X1 for additional information about range of permittivity, thickness other than 1.6 mm, and tests at frequencies other than 9.6 GHz.
