(Sr0.2Nd0.208Ca0.488)Ti1-x(Mg1/3Ta2/3)xO3 (0.2≤x≤0.5, SNCTMTx) ceramics were prepared by solid sate reaction technique. Wherein, the relation between phase compositions, microstructures, sintering properties, and microwave dielectric properties of the SNCTMTx (0.2≤x≤0.5) ceramic systems were studied. The XRD results indicated that a single phase with orthorhombic perovskite-like structure was formed in the sample with x = 0.2, and a mixed phase system was formed in the samples with given compositional range x = 0.3 - 0.5 composed of orthorhombic perovskite phase, SrO phase and unknown second phase. Additionally, the εr first increased and then decreased, affected by the appearance and the content of the second phase. Meanwhile, the Q×f value showed down first and then up with the increase of (Mg1/3Ta2/3)4+ content because the increasing degree of 1:2 ordering could suppress the reduction in quality factor. Moreover, the τf gradually shifted to near-zero direction, which resulted from the variation of the oxygen octahedral distortion. The SNCTMTx (x=0.5) ceramic sintered at 1530℃ for 4 h showed better microwave dielectric properties with εr = 55.3, Q×f ≈ 7,400 GHz and τf ≈ 23.6×10-6/℃.
