THE 5G MARKET REQUIRES NEW MATERIAL SOLUTIONS
5G MATERIAL CHALLENGES
The 5G Market Needs Higher Performance, High Volume Capable Solutions
Cutting-edge 5G electronic devices operate at faster speeds and higher frequencies. This trend will continue, and requires innovative, high-performance materials to meet consumer expectations.
Compared to incumbent polymer films, LCP film delivers greater moisture resistance, greater thermal stability, and overall improved environmental performance, critical for high frequency, high precision devices. Materials such as polyimide have lower moisture resistance which could lead to performance degradation, especially at higher frequencies. Additionally, environmental regulations do not impact LCP.
Any new solution must be manufactured at scale, and LCPs are no different. Ionic’s critical expertise enables production at scale for these materials, filling a critical market supply gap.
