Hi, Does anybody know how to do RF pcb design? I would like to do 6-layers PCB board with FR4 material. So, I am wondering which kind of 6 layer PCB stack-up is good.

Thanks.

This isn’t something that somebody can teach you thru an internet discussion. Usually RF Designers do the RF part of the layout; they simulate it and eventually the PCB Designer has to integrate or to copy this part on the mixed board. There are several methods of doing that depending on your specific flow.
If you want to study I’ll recommend you to read some training material or tutorial on ADS, which will give you a better understanding on RF layout design and simulation.

FR4 is fully OK for freq. < 1GHz, mostly up to 2 GHz, if there is not sharp (high Q) filters in the circuits realized on the PCB. (Diel. loss factor is about 0.02).
