Abstract

In this paper, we present a measurement technique for extracting complex permittivity in the range of 2-30 GHz from coupons manufactured on printed wiring boards (PWBs), with the goal of obtaining causal, frequency-dependent dielectric properties needed for high-speed transmission line modeling. This measurement method employs resonant-plate coupon structures and an analytic solution to the Helmholtz equation to calculate the relative permittivity (D K) and the loss tangent (D F) across a continuous range of frequencies. Simulations from a 3D structure simulator help decompose the total loss tangent into dielectric, radiation and conduction loss components. Hardware validation measurements are also presented.
