Application Note

Multifrequency Analysis of Epoxy Based PCB (Printed Circuit Board)

This application note demonstrates the ability of Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) to characterize the mechanical properties of an epoxy based printed circuit board (PCB) using a PerkinElmer® DMA 8000. The modulus of the PCB is measured providing an important parameter for the manufacturer. In addition, the glass transition temperature is accurately measured, which gives information about the viable temperature range in which the material can be used.
