Rogers Corp. to Exhibit, Provide Education at DesignCon

Rogers Corp. will be exhibiting (booth # 702) and educating at the upcoming DesignCon ( Now in its 21st year, DesignCon is a premiere event for design chip-circuit-and system-level engineers working on high-frequency analog and high-speed digital circuits. DesignCon 2016 is scheduled for January 19-21, 2016 (January 20-21 for the exhibition) at the Santa Clara Convention Center (Santa Clara, CA).

On the conference side, John Coonrod, Technical Marketing Manager for Rogers Advanced Connectivity Solutions, and author of the popular ROG Blog series, will participate in a 75-minute panel discussion targeting effective measurement methods for high-frequency/high-speed printed-circuit-board (PCB) materials.

This technical presentation will focus, in particular, on frequencies above 10 GHz, as needed for a growing number of applications, including many emerging wireless communications systems. Conducted by the IPC D-24c task group ( on High Frequency Test Methods, the round-robin-style panel discussion (“Track 05: Characterize PCB Materials and Processing”) will explore the properties of some of the latest circuit materials and examine different methods for testing and characterizing those materials. Joining John Coonrod in the discussion will be Glenn Oliver, Senior Engineer at DuPont, and Don DeGroot, President of CCN.

Also, Dr. Allen F. Horn III will be presenting “Effect of conductor profile structure on propagation in transmission lines” at 9:20 AM on Thursday, January 21 and participating as a member of the August panel discussion “Getting smooth copper and keeping it” at 3:45 PM on Thursday, January 21.
