Electronic Materials for Antennas

Innovative electronic materials from DuPont are used to create antennas on a wide range of substrates, and feature in applications such as RFID, various UHF applications, and high-frequency applications up to and exceeding 100 GHz.

The rapid growth of portable communications and the increasing complexity of telecommunication system applications are driving the demand for new solutions for packaging technology with frequencies up to 100 GHz and beyond, along with the need to incorporate more functions in a smaller package, at lower cost. 

To meet these needs as they evolve, DuPont has developed a variety of substrates and inks that can be used for packaging at any frequency.

For high-frequency applications, the DuPont™ GreenTape™ array of low temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC) and liquid crystal polymer (LCP) technologies offer superior performance and consistency. Our knowledge and design expertise mean we are able to help customers translate their designs into these material systems easily, for maximum results.

DuPont also offers low temperature curable conductive compositions for screen-printing antenna onto a range of substrates and geometries. DuPont inks can successfully be used in antenna applications including radio-frequency identification (RFID), ultra-high frequency (UHF) and higher frequencies. These printable materials are highly conductive and flexible, offering the ease of use and flexibility of an additive process with the radio frequency (RF) performance that today’s applications demand.
