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.

Nine Dot Connects: Good Design Instruction is a True Value-Add

11/09/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 2

11/13/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 1

11/07/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Altium held a very successful AltiumLive PCB Design Summit in San Diego, California at the beginning of October for the benefit of their North American design community, and followed it three weeks later with a counterpart European event in Munich. And what an eye-opener it proved to be—literally hundreds of delegates, a superbly organised and managed programme, billed as a completely immersive two-day interactive design experience on a theme of learning, connecting and getting inspired.
