Park Electrochemical Corp. (NYSE: PKE) announced a new marketing initiative for Meteorwave™ 1000 and Meteorwave™ 2000. Meteorwave 1000 and Meteorwave 2000 are the new names for the Company’s High Speed/Low Loss and High Speed/Very Low Loss digital electronic materials products which were formerly named N6800-22 and N6800-22 SI ®, respectively. The details of this new marketing initiative will be communicated directly to the Company’s customers and electronics OEMs which specify and design in the Company’s electronics materials products. Meteorwave 1000 and Meteorwave 2000 offer very advanced electrical performance and very high reliability. Meteorwave 1000 has a dissipation factor (“Df”) of 0.0055 at 10 GHz and 50% resin content (“RC”) using Open Resonator testing methodology. Meteorwave 2000 has a Df of 0.0040 at 10 GHz and 50% RC using Open Resonator testing methodology. These very advanced electrical properties allow for high signal speed transfers and reduced transmission loss. Meteorwave 1000 and Meteorwave 2000 are designed for multiple high temperature lead-free assemblies and high layer count printed circuit board designs which require very high levels of reliability. Meteorwave 1000 and Meteorwave 2000 are highly CAF resistant, high Tg materials with very low Z-axis expansion. These products have UL 94V-0 designations, meet IPC-4101/91 specifications and are RoHS compliant.
