Line Impedance Calculator
There are many things to consider when designing high speed PCBs. For instance, because it’s important to maintain controlled impedance during the routing of transmission lines, you need to decide ahead of time whether you’ll be using a stripline or microstrip routing method. When you’re looking for the most advanced, up-to-date PCB design tools and editors, choose Altium Designer 18. Altium Designer delivers everything you need– from a built-in impedance calculator to an easy to use Layer Stack Manager– in a single, unified design environment.
Altium Designer’s Layer Stack Manager allows you to easily visualize and configure board layers, add sublayers and configure drill pairs. And the Layer Stack Manager includes a flexible, Impedance Formula Editor for simple calculation of Trace Width and Impedance formulas.
