Differential Microstrip Impedance Calculator
Electronics designers and engineers face many decisions when designing high performance PCBs. When choosing between microstrip and stripline routing for your design, you need the best PCB design tools and editors available to help you make the best decision. Altium Designer 18 includes a powerful Layer Stack Manager with built-in impedance calculator to simplify the process. And while Altium has just about everything you need, if you’re looking specifically for a differential impedance calculator, we recommend a 3rd party stackup impedance calculator like those available from Polar Instruments and In-Circuit Design.
The Layer Stack Manager in Altium Designer 18 allows for easy visualization and configuration of board layers, drill payers and for the addition of sublayers to your board. The Layer Stack Manager also includes an easy to use Impedance Formula Editor, which allows you to view, modify and calculate Impedance and Trace Width formulas quickly.
The new Altium Designer 18 platform includes these features:
Powerful schematic, PCB editors and Board Layout with layer stack templates
Advanced Design Rule Checker and Design Verification
Interconnected Rigid-Flex and Multi-Board Assembly
Fast and High-Quality Routing
Real-time BOM Management
