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. The Speedstack Si is capable of:
- Live online base material library links directly with Speedstack
- Material data from 18 base material suppliers
- Easy to select and download by material family
- Simplifies initial setup –rapidly gets you up and running.
- Quickly add newly released materials to your existing library
“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.
