There are several factors to consider when deciding between using microstrip and stripline routing in high speed PCB design. Typically, microstrip routing is less expensive when it comes to manufacturing and usually has better signal characteristics than stripline routing. Whichever method you choose for your design, make sure you have the PCB design tools you want to get the job done right.
