********** W element tline definition**********
*
* The following defines a two conductor w
* element transmission line model for a dual
* stripline board structure with 0.5 oz trace
* thickness, 4 mil wide trace and 60 ohm target
* characteristic impedance. The six mil separation
* between the traces produces a diff impedance of
* 99.2 ohms. This was calculated using the Polar
* Instruments CITS25 Field Solver. This will model one
* coupled differential signal pair.
* Define the board material
.MATERIAL diel_fr4 DIELECTRIC ER=4.1
+LOSSTANGENT=0.020
.MATERIAL copper METAL CONDUCTIVITY=5.8e+07
* Define the cross section of the trace, rectangle
* 1/2 oz copper, 4 mil wide
.SHAPE rect RECTANGLE WIDTH=4mil, HEIGHT=0.7mil
* Define the dual stripline structure, two striplines
* between two 2 oz pwr/gnd planes. Each trace is 5 mils
* from the plane and five mils from the other trace.
