Benefits of Rogers PCB

Although Rogers PCB is more expensive and difficult to process than PCB made of conventional materials such as FR-4. However, its status in specific application fields is still significant. The following are its advantages:

  • Rogers PCB dielectric constant (DK) needs to be small and stable. In general, smaller is better. The rate at which a signal transmits data is inversely proportional to the relative capacitance constant. A high dielectric constant is bad for signal transmission.
  • Rogers PCB has a small dissipation factor(DK). Small dissipation factor (DF) guarantees the quality of high-frequency electronic products.
  • The Rogers circuit board material thermal expansion coefficient is 17ppm/℃, which is consistent with that of copper foil, thus ensuring the stability of the product.
  • The minimal water absorption of Rogers PCB makes it well-suited for use in high-humidity environments.
  • Rogers PCB board has good heat, chemical, impact, and peel resistance.

Types of Rogers PCB

Standard Rogers PCB Board

Standard Rogers PCB Board includes single-layer, double-side, and multilayer, multilayer, and board. The inner and outer layers are made of Rogers pcb board material.

Mixed FR-4+Rogers PCB Board

In the manufacturing process of multilayer circuit boards, FR4 and Rogers PCB board are mixed together to press to multilayer Rogers PCB board, that is, Rogers PCB laminate, which is called mixed FR-4+Rogers PCB.

The design of Rogers FR4 PCB is advantageous for cost-effectiveness, enhanced bending strength, control of electromagnetic interference, and various other factors.

Rogers PCB Fabrication

Rogers PCB Fabrication is almost the same as the standard FR4 board.

      1. Material cutting: Cut the PCB big sheet into production dimensions.
      2. Drilling: Mechanical drilling according to the FAB drilling file to prepare for subsequent electrical connections between layers.
      3. Plating: The copper plating within the hole facilitates the conduction of each layer's circuit on the board, simultaneously enhancing the copper thickness.
      4. Copper layer: Apply dry film to the surface of the PCB substrate, and after exposure, development, and etching, complete the circuit copper layer production.
      5. Printing solder mask: Cover the areas of PCB boards that do not need to be soldered with solder mask ink printing for protection and insulation.
      6. Printed Symbol: Print the symbol on the PCB board surface for easy subsequent welding processes.
      7. Surface treatment: Apply a layer of ENIG, HASL, or another surface finish to the surface of the bare copper plate to be soldered.
      8. CNC Milling: Furnish the customer-specified board appearance to facilitate SMT mounting and assembly.
      9. Circuit Open/Short test: Test the board's circuit to prevent the short or open circuit board before outgoing.
      10. FQC: Final inspection, sampling, and full inspection after completing Rogers PCB fabrication.
      11. Packaging and outgoing: Vacuum packaging of the prepared Rogers PCB board, packaging and shipping, and completion of delivery.

FR4 VS Rogers PCB Material

Material composition and properties:

FR4 is a fiberglass-reinforced epoxy resin material. It is widely used in general applications and is relatively low-cost. Rogers PCB uses special composite materials produced by Rogers Company. It is mainly used for high-performance and high-frequency applications. The cost is relatively high.

Dielectric constant and dielectric loss:

The dielectric constant of FR4 is usually around 4.0, up to 4.5, and the dielectric loss is relatively high.
Rogers PCB offers a variety of series; its dielectric constant can be adjusted between 6.5 and 11, and the dielectric loss is relatively low, so it is the first choice material for high-heat applications.


If you are a PCB enthusiast, you must know that FR4 is a common and affordable printed circuit board material. It is suitable for many general electronic devices and systems.
But if you have higher performance requirements, Rogers PCB is your first choice, even if it costs more.

Thermal performance:

In high-power applications, the temperature can affect FR4. This results in changes to its dielectric constant and increased signal transmission losses.

These issues may even cause electronic equipment failure. At present, there is a need to augment the heat capacity of the PCB.

Rogers PCB can usually withstand higher operating temperatures due to its use of special high-performance composite materials.

Rogers PCB Board Fabrication Is More Difficult Than Standard FR4 PCB Because of Its Material Characteristics:

      • Rogers PCB impedance trace width/space control is strict, and general tolerance is around 2%.
      • Rogers PCB adhesion of PTH copper deposition is low due to the special PCB board material. It is usually used in plasma processing equipment to roughen the vias and surface to increase the adhesion of the PTH hole copper and solder mask ink.
      • Rogers PCB working panel cannot be pretreated before printing the solder mask as the special material.
      • Most of the Rogers PCBs are made of polytetrafluoroethylene materials. Using regular milling cutters for milling may result in excessive burrs, necessitating the use of a specialized milling cutter.

Why is Rogers PCB price Higher than Standard PCB?

What should you pay attention when assembly Rogers PCB?

Assembly Rogers PCB Quality Assurance Of Solder Paste

The quality of solder paste directly affects the quality of the product. Therefore, Pay attention to the temperature of refrigeration, the temperature and humidity during the printing process, and the time for reflow.

Assembly Rogers PCB SMT Temperature Control

SMT processing is a very important part of the PCBA manufacturing process. The temperature curve control of reflow soldering plays a vital role in the welding quality of PCBA boards in the later stage.

Assembly Rogers PC DIP Temperature Control

DIP plugins are the last step in circuit board processes. This process is easy due to poor soldering, such as continuous soldering, insufficient soldering, and lack of soldering. Therefore, temperature control and wave soldering quality are emphasized.
