Testing, modeling and documentation for impedance control and insertion loss

Insertion loss modeling and PCB signal integrity – 3GHz and above

Polar's product suite for insertion loss modeling, PCB stackup design and PCB signal integrity is designed for OEMs and fabricators who are concerned with PCBs running at speeds where insertion losses need to be managed. Typically, these run in the 3 to 50GHz arena, though the Si9000e is also capable of modeling right down to the KHz range in support of the broadest band of transmission line signalling.

Impedance controlled PCBs – up to 3GHz

Polar's interconnected tools for impedance controlled PCBs are designed for OEMs and fabricators who are concerned with PCBs running in the popular 100MHz to 3GHz region, especially those with applications where signal reflection rather than insertion loss is the main criteria from a signal integrity perspective.
