Taconic TSM-DS3 is a thermally stable, industry-leading low loss (Df = 0.0011 at 10 GHZ) epoxy resin that can be manufactured with the best predictability and consistency of glass fiber reinforced epoxy resins. Taconic TSM-DS3 is a ceramic-filled reinforcement with a very low glass fiber content (~5%) comparable to that used in the manufacture of large, complex multilayer membranes.

Taconic TSM-DS3 was developed for high power applications (thermal conductivity = 0.65 W/M * K) where the dielectric material must conduct heat away from other heat sources in the PWB design. Taconic TSM-DS3 was also developed with an extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion to meet demanding thermal cycling requirements.

The Taconic TSM-DS3 core, combined with Taconic fast Rise™ 27 (Df = 0.0014,10 GHz) prepreg, is an industry-leading solution for achieving the lowest dielectric loss at epoxy-like manufacturing temperatures of 420˚F. The low insertion loss of Taconic TSM-DS3 / fast Rise™ 27 can only be achieved achieved by fusion bonding (melting pure Teflon® laminates from 550˚F to 650˚F). Fusion bonding is expensive, causes excessive material movement and puts pressure on plated through holes. For complex multilayers, the low throughput pushes up the final material cost. Fast Rise™ 27 enables sequential lamination of TSM-DS3 at temperatures as low as 420˚F with consistency and predictability, reducing costs.

For microwave applications, low x, y, and z CTE values ensure very low temperature shift in the critical spacing between traces in filters and couplers. Taconic TSM-DS3 can be used with very thin copper foils to produce smooth copper edges between coupling lines.

Alignment on multiple layers is critical for yield and copper weight variations, and copper etching on panels can lead to nonlinear movement. Non-linear movement on large panels results in drilled holes that do not align with the pad and possible open circuits.

A. The Taconic TSM-DS3 is compatible with Ticer® and Ohmega Ply® resistor foils.
