Intercept Technology’s Impedance Calculator allows engineers specializing in the design and layout of printed circuit boards to calculate the total electrical impedance for the following transmission line types:

Microstrip

Embedded microstrip

Edge-coupled microstrip

Symmetric stripline

Asymmetric stripline

Broadside-coupled stripline

Enter physical line values for dielectric height/thickness, wire width, wire thickness, relative dielectric constant and wire gap (if applicable) to calculate impedance. The calculator also determines wire width if the impedance is known.

Additional information:

The calculator displays the formula used for each transmission line type, if needed.

Units may be selected as microns or MM as needed. Impedance is calculated in Ohms.
