Circular Disk Resonator Type
Dielectric Constant and Dielectric Loss Tangent(Dk/Df)
Measurement System

Model No. DPS51

DPS51 is a resonance method, circular disk type dielectric constant and dielectric loss tangent measurement system optimized for sheet materials with dielectric constant of approximately 1.05 to 10 and relatively small dielectric loss in the frequency range of 3GHz to 70GHz. This measurement technique was announced at 2012 IEEE IMS.

Features

Place a sample on 2 different PCB resonators and overlay the metal lid on each to apply pressure, and take measurements twice.
This method will

  1. Eliminate the fringing effect
  2. Eliminate conductor loss of resonator
  3. Eliminate the necessity for creating resonance pattern
  4. Generate an electric field perpendicular to the sample sheet
