We present a novel technique to fabricate conformal and pliable substrates for microwave applications including systems-on-package. The produced materials are fabricated by combining ceramic powders with polymers to generate a high-contrast substrate that is concurrently pliable (bendable). Several such polymer-ceramic substrates are fabricated and used to examine the performance of a patch antenna and a coupled line filter. This paper presents the substrate mixing method while measurements are given to evaluate the loss performance of the substrates. Overall, the fabricated composites lead to flexible substrates with a permittivity of up to epsilon(r) = 20 and sufficiently low loss.
