Eric: I'd love to see at the February event the 2014 update of that "Most Importnat Slide"

I'd also love to hear your insights on the question of new materials and transports like Megtron-6 and optics.

"The difference, however, is less than an order of magnitude."


Megatron6 is one of the future PCB dielectric material. Is it commercially deployed yet? How does the cost of Megatro6 compares to that of FR4?

Some time back I learned Megatron6 is only one in the list of several other low loss PCB dielectric material such as FX-2, I-speed (from Isola) etc. Is there a comparative chart available somewhere?

What about the concept of using the optical PCB and interconnects for the high speed backplane? Not sure if there are any significant breakthrough made on the optical PCB technology.

When you have mutliple HSS, is it possible to get embedded coax in PCB. Are there technics available for this? Main reason is that, high speed signal is only part of all signals and there are many more signals which requires backplane.
