Intercept Announces Impedance Calculator App for Android

ATLANTA, GA – June 24, 2015 – Intercept Technology Inc., a leading EDA software developer for PCB, RF and hybrid design solutions today announced the development and availability of a new impedance calculator app available on Android devices. The tool, which allows designers to quickly make microstrip and stripline impedance calculations, is available on Google Play at play.google.com free of charge. The app is compatible with phones, phablets and tablets running the Android operating system.

The Impedance Calculator includes industry-standard formulas for microstrip, embedded microstrip, edge-coupled microstrip, symmetric/assymetric stripline, edge coupled stripline, and broadside coupled stripline transmission lines. The calculator can display the formula used for each transmission line type, if needed.

Users enter values for dielectric height or thickness, wire width, wire thickness, relative dielectric constant and wire gap (if applicable) to calculate the impedance. Users can also determine the wire width if the impedance is known.

The Impedance Calculator is also delivered seamlessly to customers within the Pantheon application environment, allowing users to access the calculator functions alongside the PCB software program’s state-of-the-art design features.  

“The addition of Intercept’s first app highlights our expanding toolset across new technological boundaries: the app provides our customers with more choice over how they access Intercept functionality,” said Dale Hanzelka, Director of Sales and Marketing at Intercept. “The Impedance Calculator app is one example of how we are offering our tools to customers in new, flexible and exciting ways.”
