Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a range of organic micromachining techniques that enable a planar membrane-based printed circuit to be fabricated on a 5 μm thick organic membrane in the absence of any steps involving thermal oxidation and low pressure chemical vapor deposition. The technologies are suitable for mass production of millimeter-wave or submillimeter-wave components. Transmission losses of a membrane-supported E-plane component are typically less than 0.5 dB/cm.
