Hybrid PCB

Hybrid PCB

A hybrid PCB is a multilayer printed circuit board, which has dissimilar material for each layer. With the right combination of substrates, the reliability of hybrid PCBs increases many folds. In fact, different substrate materials which have different dielectric quotients, different coefficients of thermal expansion improve the electrical performance of the PCB. With its improved system reliability and optimized electrical performance, these boards are focused towards high-frequency RF applications.

materials utilized in the fabrication of hybrid pcb

Typically, a hybrid PCB could use a mix of FR-4 material with high frequency PTFE material.


PTFE material is a ceramic-filled plastics used for fabricating high-frequency PCBs. It is suitable for applications that require improved impedance control and low signal loss.


FR-4 is a commonly used material in the fabrication of a printed circuit board. Flame Retardant and low on costs, it is known for its electrical insulation & high dielectric strength. Additionally, it can also withstand moisture & a varying temperature range.


This material is known for its high chemical resistance as also its great electrical properties. Additionally, the material is lightweight and flexible. However, polyimide is more expensive when compared to PTFE & FR-4.

Often PTFE and FR-4 are utilized in designing hybrid PCBs. PTFE laminates work well for high-speed functions while FR-4 is preferred for low-speed applications. FR-4 can also be helpful in balancing the thickness issues for the layers of these laminates.

Challenges to consider when designing Hybrid PCBs

Some of the aspects to consider when designing hybrid PCB is to understand that each material has a different CTE value. This can have issues as when one laminate expands, the other may shrink. It is, therefore, important to ensure proper layer separation when fabricating multilayered hybrid PCBs. Another issue to be tackled includes delamination, for which knowing the period of delamination for materials is extremely important. Depending on the type of material, the adhesive system utilized for hybrid circuit board also varies.

It is important therefore to go with a company that has the necessary experience and expertise in designing and fabricating hybrid boards. At Technotronix, we offer you high-quality hybrid PCBs to meet your bespoke requirements.

Hybrid PCBs FAQs

A hybrid printed circuit board is a PCB that uses dissimilar materials. Hybrid PCBs optimize electrical performance as well as improve system reliability.

Hybrid PCB stack up is used to improve SI for signals routed on selected layers.

The materials used by hybrid PCBs have different critical properties as opposed to a traditional multilayer PCB. It is common to use a mix of FR-4 materials with high frequency PTFE materials, or a mix of different high-frequency materials with different di-electric constants.

With high frequency hybrid PCBs both HF material and regular material are used in the same printed board. This can meet the requirements of both high frequency and regular frequency. This results in high reliability of the board as well as its cost-effectiveness.

You can use hybrid PCB whenever you want to expand creativity for the desired electrical, thermal and mechanical properties. There are many other aspects you should consider before using hybrid PCBs; including required application, temperature, types of frequencies, costs, and more.
