IBM Selects Panasonic’s MEGTRON 6 Laminate System


Reading time ( words)

Panasonic’s high-speed, low-loss laminate system, MEGTRON 6, has been selected by IBM for use in the company’s new z14 mainframe computers. Launched in July of this year, the z14 is IBM’s latest mainframe computer, which comprises the world’s fastest microprocessor, with clock-speed at 5.2 GHz. The new IBM z14 mainframe is the core of trusted digital experiences. It enables the protection of data via pervasive encryption. The z14 is designed to be open and connected in the cloud, enabling massive transaction scale of high volume encrypted workloads at low cost.

MEGTRON 6 (R-5775) is designed specifically for such high-speed network equipment and high-frequency measuring instruments. MEGTRON 6 is a woven glass-reinforced laminate system which possesses the PCB industry’s highest combined performance characteristics of Dk 3.5, Df .002 and Td 410°C.

PCB Material Toolbox for Today’s 3G and 4G Networks and Future High-Speed Needs in 5G

06/27/2018 | Stig Källman, ERICSSON with Happy Holden, I-CONNECT007
The material toolbox idea first came up when I saw the IPC appendix list for standard 1-ply stack-ups. The idea is to make a very simple bill of materials, specifications and notes, and possibly use the same prepreg/resin in the laminate and in the core.
