Polar Speedstack Si Integrates Insertion Loss Field Solver; To Exhibit at productronica


Reading time ( words)

Polar Instruments, a specialist provider of tools for PCB design, fabrication and test, announces a major enhancement for Speedstack Si at productronica. Speedstack Si 2018 edition now contains an integrated insertion loss field solver – which lets the user both design and add comprehensive insertion loss graphs and stackup specification into Speedstack’s professional report engine.

“Having a built in Polar field solver in Speedstack as well as a seamless connection to the industry standard Si9000e insertion loss solver adds significant capability for the fabricator and PCB technologist working with multi GHz designs,” explains Neil Chamberlain, Signal Integrity Product manager at Polar Instruments. “One of the key strengths of the Speedstack system is its ability to accurately document detailed specifications for each layer in a PCB stackup. By providing both graphical insertion loss data and live link to regularly updated material libraries the liaison between the design specification authority and the PCB fabricator is simplified and the communication path enhanced.”

Speedstack is part of a suite of signal integrity and documentation tools from Polar, enabling OEM PCB specifiers and fabricators to accurately communicate layer stackup and associated signal integrity requirements. Polar Impedance and Insertion loss field solvers, along with Impedance and Insertion loss test systems connect with Speedstack to close the loop between specifying, test vehicle generation, modeling and measurement.

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals

06/20/2018 | Dave Lackey and Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
The design process is arguably the most important part of the flex circuit procurement process. The decisions made in the design process will have a lasting impact, for better or worse, throughout the manufacturing cycle. In advance of providing important details about the actual construction of the flex circuit, it is of value to provide some sort of understanding of the expected use environment for the finished product.

Faster Board Speeds Demand Constraint-Driven Design

06/19/2018 | Ralf Bruening, Zuken
Using powerful constraint techniques can be a double-edged sword. While the design process is made much safer by including constraints, it is all too easy to over-constrain the design and make it impossible to complete routing and placement. Even paper design guidelines can make products uneconomic to produce unless a great deal of engineering knowledge is applied during the design.

Making the Most of PCB Materials for 5G Microwave and mmWave Amps

06/13/2018 | John Coonrod, Rogers Corporation
Ready or not, 5G is coming, and it will require the right circuit materials for many different types of high-frequency circuits, including power amplifiers. 5G represents the latest and greatest in wireless technology, and it will be challenging to design and fabricate, starting with the circuit board materials, because it will operate across many different frequencies, such as 6 GHz and below, as well as at millimeter-wave frequencies (typically 30 GHz and above).
