Dear Intel team, Our company Sunshine global circuits is a Chinese based PCB maker located in Senzhen city, China. Many customer asked us to measure insertion loss or return loss of the trace on the board. From intel website, we know the delta L Methodology for Electrical Characterization, but we don't know how to design this kind of circuits on the testing board. Can we get more information about this technology or give us the contact window to talk? Brs, Pippen

Hi, @CarlosAM_INTEL ,

Thnaks for your reply. I got this two documents and read it detailly. For a designer with less experience on this technology, we want to know how to design a real circuits layout including impedence, line width, pad size and distacne, micro stripline, stripline, etc. I got news from my friend that we should get a licence from Intel Co., then we can get the detailed gerber file. Could you give me any idea about this?

Thank you 

Brs,

Pippen

Hello, @Pippen:

Thanks for your reply.

We suggest following the layout guidelines stated in the Platform Design Guide (PDG) document and any documents associated with it.

These documents and files that you have mentioned generally require that you have access to a Resource & Design Center (RDC) privileged account.

The RDC Account Support form is the channel to process your update account. You should fill it out on the following website:

Best regards,

@Mæcenas_INTEL.

Thanks for your reply, I follow your suggestion and try to send a request to get the RDC account. I filled  all the items and want to press "submit request" button, but it can't press. I tried several times and finally I give up. What's my next step?

Hello @arios,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

 

You are right, these links are wrong, my apologies for the inconvenience.

 

In RDC, there are some documents regarding Delta-L methodology:

https://rdc.intel.com/

 

Document #527628 - Delta-L Methodology for Electrical Characterization

Document #568775 - Delta-L Study for PCB Electrical Characterization

Document #567187 - De-embedding Study for Delta-L Metrology in PCB Electrical Characterization

 

Also, these ones may be of help too:

Document #570615 - Intel® Transmission line De-embedding Tool (Intel® TDT) Software

Document #570616 - Intel® Transmission line De-embedding Tool (Intel® TDT) User Guide

 

You will need a Premier account in order to get access to these documents or you may ask to an Intel Sales Representative in any Authorized Distributor Partner near your zone.
