Fr4 Pcb Material
FR4 or FR-4 is a flame retardant material used to laminate PCB. It is a popular choice among PCB designers because of its versatility and durability in a variety of conditions. FR4 prevents water from being absorbed onto the PCB as well. When you are designing a multi-layered PCB, you obviously need insulation between these layers, so that means you need to be using a software that not only supports that choice but makes it easy.
Altium Designer is the leading PCB design platform worldwide. Not only is Altium Designer easy to learn how to use, it gives you all the tools you need to rapidly design your PCB. When it comes to using FR4 and other dielectric materials, Altium Designer’s Layer Stack Manager is key.
Layer Stack Manager lets you specify:
A name for the layer
The type of layer
The desired thickness of FR4 or another solder mask material
The dielectric constant of solder mask material
The thickness of a custom coverlay
