GreenTape™ low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) materials

DuPont™ GreenTape™ 9K7 is a lead free* low loss glass ceramic dielectric tape for high frequency applications - up to 100 gigahertz (GHz) and beyond - that includes compatible gold and silver conductors, plus co-fired embedded resistors.  For advanced high-frequency, microwave, and millimetre wave electronic circuit applications within the aerospace, automotive, military, consumer electronics, and telecommunications industries.

GreenTape™ 9K7 delivers: 

  • High reliability via hermetic packaging
  • Repeatability in processing
  • Low loss at high frequency
  • Stable dielectric constant, shrinkage, and surface roughness following a wide variety of downstream processing conditions.
  • Unique benefits for system integrators/OEMs 
  • Unique benefits for fabricators 

These properties make GreenTape™ 9K7 a unique solution for leading edge applications requiring RF and microwave frequencies, such as bluetooth, automotive safety radar systems, and transceivers.

All components of the DuPont™ GreenTape™ 9K7 LTCC system are compatible, to facilitate their introduction into the manufacturing process.

For System Integrators and OEMs DuPont™ GreenTape™ 9K7 is ideal for electronic system designs which need to deliver a high density, low loss, cost effective interconnect and packaging solution that performs with exceptionally high reliability. 

Benefits versus not-in-kind organic laminates such as liquid crystal polymer, include:

  • Higher routing density
  • Reduction in footprint of approximately 20%
  • Embedded resistor capability
  • Better hermeticity
  • Up to 80% better TCE match with gallium arsenide and silicon die.

 

For Fabricators More robust in processing, GreenTape™ 9K7 offers a stable dielectric constant even when refired, which translates into consistently higher yields for final circuits. 

Processing advantages versus other merchant tape systems include:

  • Approximately 25% lower loss
  • A 10 – 15% increase in mechanical strength
  • Significantly improved re-fire (6X) stability of dielectric constant and surface roughness
