Altium Designer makes ultra-high-performance design move faster at Spectrum Integrity: Page 3 of 3

July 18, 2012 //By Michael Ingham, Spectrum Integrity
Spectrum Integrity designs ultra-high-speed digital, RF, and microwave PCBs which, at 20 to 110 GHz and beyond, are among the most challenging applications in industry. Its customer design challenges require a proprietary “outside the box” process. Yet at the same time, the company must interface with industry standard component libraries as well as the design review processes of its clients.
and thorough, and it avoids unnecessary questions and steps. Our customers are very pleased.”

Finally, Altium Designer has automated the generation of Gerber manufacturing files, which saves time and minimizes manufacturing errors.

Spectrum Integrity designs ultra-high-speed digital, RF, and microwave PCBs that process signals at frequencies from 20 to 110 GHz and above. The CAD screenshots show 12- and 14-layer ultra-high-speed digital applications successfully designed in Altium Designer. These examples have outer layer traces designed to support 50 GHz signals and multiple inner layer traces designed to support 28 GHz. These designs utilized complex geometries, split power planes, transmission lines, and coplanar vias successfully designed using a combination of Altium Designer and proprietary design techniques.
