PHYSICAL AND ELECTRICAL CALCULATIONS

TraceSim, is a robust and powerful interconnect calculation program that will give specific answers for circuits with certain known information. This means you don't have to use lookup Tables, Calculators or Simulators to determine the interconnect parameters. Fast, easy to use and ultra low cost, makes TraceSim a valuable designer tool. Enter the know parameters and you will have instance results for the unknown parameters. Have a PCB trace or set of traces and want to know the impedance, capacitance and crosstalk parameters. Just enter the data in the physical area and you will get the electrical performance of the circuit. TraceSim is the designers pocket calculator.

TraceSim uses empirical data and formulas from the IPC-2251 4WD standard. Sections 5 to 6. To download a PDF of these files Click here


Available Parameters - Results Parameters
Trace Width Trace Thickness Board Thickness Material Properties
Characteristic Impedance Time Delay Phase Delay Inductance
Capacitance Frequency Propagation Time Delay Propagation Phase Delay
Trace Separation Switching Voltage Trace length Reverse Crosstalk

Physical Parameters
h = Substrate Thickness
w = Trace Width
t = Trace Thickness
x = Trace Offset

You select what you want as a variable and change the other parameters to meet the specific results. The above screen shows that the target parameter is 'Trace Width (W)' and the fixed parameters are 50 ohm Char. Impedance, Board Height of 6 Mils, Trace Thickness of 2.8 Mils and the FR-4 dielectric of 3.9. The Trace Width is the parameter in question which should be 8.429 Mils.
