Abstract

This paper presents the results from evaluation of suitable materials and ink properties for printing millimeter wave components. Dielectric parameters (relative permittivity and loss tangent) of various potential substrate materials are extracted from S-parameter measurements and simulations. Test samples have been printed over Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and Polyethylene Naphthalate (PEN) substrates and the measurement of the ink properties have been carried out.
