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.

SnapEDA: Recruiting Top Engineering Talent in an Amazon World

05/31/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
You don’t have to love EDA to work at SnapEDA, but it helps. This startup, founded by Natasha Baker, is on its way to creating the world’s largest parts library for PCB designers. Baker leads a small team of young, fiercely talented engineers—the kind of employees that are attractive to companies like Google and Facebook. I asked Natasha to explain her hiring process, and how she ensures that each employee is the right fit for SnapEDA.
