What is Rogers PCB?
Rogers PCB is a type of PCB made by the material of Rogers company raw material. The PCB is RF PCB.
Circuit boards are made using laminate materials, which are produced by Rogers. The majority of circuit boards are built of FR4 (Flame Retardant Level 4), a glass fiber/epoxy composite with laminated copper foil on one or both sides.
Rogers will sell you FR-4 laminates (a copper laminate over a FR-4 core), but they are better known for cores with superior high frequency characteristics, such PTFE (Teflon). While they cost more than fiber glass, they exhibit less loss at high frequencies. They are hence suitable for RF circuit boards.
Rogers PCBs Advantages
- Effective impedance control.
- Minimal outgassing capability that is crucial for applications in space.
- The values of the dielectric constant can be found in a wide range.
- Efficient thermal functioning management.
- Lowest dielectric loss rates.
- Least amount of electrical signal loss possible.
Difference between Rogers and FR4 material
- The material by Rogers is likewise quite good with regard to impedance stability. Its dielectric constant is variable.
- The Rogers material has the fewest signal losses. While FR4 material has considerable signal losses due to its higher dissipation factor.
- In comparison to FR4, Rogers material might offer the best high frequencies.
- Compared to FR4, Rogers’s material is more expensive.
- When it comes to temperature control, Rogers material is more stable than FR4 material.
- In comparison to the Rogers material, the FR4 material has a lower dielectric constant value.
Why Rogers PCB price can be calculated by online PCB calculators?
Only the simpler boards with 1 to 8 layers may be calculated using online PCB calculators. Higher-performance PCBs cannot be priced using a computation technique; instead, engineers must read them before we can provide you with an exact quote. Typically, Rogers boards are extremely complex. Rogers PCB typically requires engineers to assess its cost.
The PCB pricing is entirely unique, unlike other products, and it relies on your design and requirements. In reality, the online calculators merely establish the parameter ranges, and various pricing falls inside various ranges. Some parameter even don’t exist in the Online calculators setting. That why you can’t depend on the Online PCB calculators for your rogers PCB too. Lucky we offer 24/7 hours engineer quote service, you can get instant quotation, if you contact us.
Of course, prices for various Rogers PCBs vary. The RO3000 series, for instance, costs more than the RO4003C. In addition, cost for Rogers PCBs manufacturer offers may vary greatly by region. PCB stores in western Europe and North America have much higher prices than PCB businesses in China. A PCB quote from the former may be ten times more expensive than one from the latter.
Why we are a good partner for your rogers PCB project?
We are partner of Rogers company. Our rogers material is first hand from Rogers, quality is better than those manufacturers who buy long time stocked rogers material.
The base material for hf PCB is the most expensive component. In order to guarantee the greatest performance and stability of the board, our warehouse is fully loaded with directly imported U.S. Rogers boards as well as other types. (We will provide the traders a low price for the boards that have been stored for over 40 days.)
The production’s expansion and contraction coefficients differ from those of FR-4 and metal since the materials are different. The essential technique (protected by a patent), which is to minimize the expansion and contraction control of the board, is the expansion and contraction control of Rogers board by our factory.

The Rogers 4350B’s materials are perfect for high power RF designs and super-active appliances due to its low loss capability and reliable control over its dielectric constant (DK).
This Rogers PCB type supports 5G wireless applications and ADAS and is appropriate for 77 GHz automobile radar applications.
The 3006 type has a dependable dielectric constant across a wide temperature range and high mechanical and electrical stability. Additionally, it eliminates the Dk’s step change.
