Can some one address the issues associated with manufacturing,th The
producibility issues and how widely is Nelco used?

My experience so far, (and I'll admit it's little) is that board
manufacturers prefer to work certain materials and they have
"internal" processes that give them an advantage in manufacturing
for example IBM prefers to work with BT (in high speed digital
backplane applications, for example)).

When looking at different materials should we settle for what "our"
fabricator suggests, has more experience with, etc, etc?

Above 1 Ghz dielectric loss dominates. The dielectric loss
tangent for the nelco is much better than the Getek. Since
the signal edges contain components several times the
data rate, high frequency losses will start closing the eye.
