Applied Wave Research, Inc. and DuPont Microcircuit Materials (part of DuPont Electronic Technologies) has released a process design kit (PDK) that enables RF, microwave, and millimeter wave designers to access the DuPont GreenTape low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) technology within AWR's Microwave Office® 2006 software. When used in conjunction with the DuPont LTCC PDK, the Microwave Office design platform is designed to enable RF, monollthic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), and hybrid circuit designers to improve circuit design productivity, shorten product development cycle, and speed time-to-market for high-frequency products.
The PDK gives Microwave Office users faster and easier access to the DuPont low loss lead-free 943 Green Tape LTCC system. The system is well suited for high-frequency applications, delivering high density functionality; excellent reliability, low power requirements, and low cost interconnect packaging.
The DuPont GreenTape LTCC PDK for Microwave Office 2006 software is available immediately, from AWR, without additional charge for all customers using Microwave Office 2006 software. For more information on the DuPont GreenTape LTCC system, please visit mcm.dupont.com.
