Tuneable dielectric, low loss materials

RF and Microwave Devices

RF and MW Applications

Fortify is developing a palette of dielectric materials for printing components used in high-bandwidth, high frequency communication systems. Specifically tailored for wide-band mm-wave applications, the Fortify platform grants users the capability to manufacture low roughness, high-resolution features necessary for high frequency applications.

Fortify’s patented DCM (Digital Composite Manufacturing) platform enables repeatable and reliable printing of particle filled photopolymers. For RF applications, a unique low-loss polymer is blended with specialty dielectric ceramic additives to create dielectric materials.

RF and MW Applications

Leveraging lattice-based design, the Fortify platform can print functionally graded architectures – generating monolithic components with smooth gradients of effective permittivity perfect for GRIN (Gradient Index) applications. Fortify’s RF materials are an excellent choice for printing lenses, wave-guides, and connectors.
