Trace Analyzer / Impedance Calculator

This is the application version of the Trace Analyzer. For on-line usage, please visit the applet version. To get a peek at the tool, click the link to a screenshots of the Layer Stackup Editor, Trace Editor (coupled microstrips, coupled striplines, a pair of coplanar traces, and multiple traces coupled through a slot), and the data view of the RLGC matrices. Here are some of the features offered by the tool:

  • Integrated Material Editor
  • Integrated Layer Stackup (Metal and Dielectric Layer) Editor
  • Accommodating layered media with any number of dielectric/metal layers
  • Designations of some metal layers to be connected to the ground (GND)
  • Allowing any number of traces on any metal layers (except GND layers) with
    customized width and spacing rules
  • Calculations of RLGC matrices and the derived impedance matrix
  • Export RLGC parameters to W-element files compatible with HSPICE
  • Export RLGC parameters to model file compatible with ADS
  • File formats for storing material, layer stackup and trace design information
  • New in Version 2.0
    • Activated the “under_cut” parameter as a property of a metal layer. This allows the cross sections of traces to take general trapezoidal shape.
    • Utilized the “z_offset” parameter as another property of a metal layer.
    • More accurate calculation method applied to stripline, and dual-stripline traces.
    • Calculation and report of crosstalk coefficients.
