Impedance Calculator (IMP)

The Impedance Calculator performs two way calculations between the following parameters: line width, differential line width & spacing, substrate thickness, impedance, and dielectric constant for various micro-strip and stripline configurations.

     

The only impedance calculator that will allow for trace etch taper and a separate dielectric constant for solder mask. The only impedance calculator that will quickly fine tune trace and substrate structures with geometry calculations based on input target impedances. 

Impedance Calculator is available to add to any Designer Suites

Impedance Calculator is available as Stand-Alone software for use directly Inside Microsoft Windows™
