    • fixed a limit dimension for the substrate at 8 x 8 inches.

    • The recommended thickness of the substrate is 5 mils, due to its higher deformation resistance than 2 or 3 mils.

    • Good thickness of copper: 0.5 oz –> this corresponds to the weight of 1Γ—1 foot layer of copper (corresponds to 0.17 um).

  • Dupont

    • Product: Kapton, Pyralux (polymide material)
