Whatever your 5G telecommunications needs, 3M can help you get it done. Our global resources monitor the latest 5G trends and materials needs. Our global lab capabilities target the high frequencies necessary for 5G mmWave . This allows for testing of dielectrics up to 90 GHz.
Wherever there’s 5G, there’s 3M. We collaborate with top scientists and engineers from around the world on high-frequency test methodologies. See some of our latest activities below.
In March, the National Physical Laboratory presented a 3M–NPL coauthored paper at the 15th annual European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP).
3M scientists, working closely with the National Physical Laboratory in England, have developed the best electromagnetic material characterization in the 5G industry. Ranging from 10–90 GHz , this enables advanced mmWave testing and modeling never before achieved in the industry.
For hardware designers who specify materials of construction for radomes, antenna grade laminates, PCBs, and electrical connectors. Utilize your familiarity with common composites materials such as glass fiber and low-loss polymers to learn about more advanced materials available. This presentation will compare performance of 3M™ Nextel Ceramic Fibers in these applications, specifically focusing on dielectric loss and tensile modulus. It will also review adding 3M™ Glass Bubbles to copper clad laminates in order to improve coefficient of thermal expansion and improved dielectric properties.
3M technicians are always innovating. We are pioneering some of the best electromagnetic material characterization in the 5G industry. Our deep knowledge of materials sciences, automotive and electronics puts us on the cutting edge of testing and production of ultra-low-loss materials. Polymer performance additives and fluoropolymers are just the start.
