The CMP platforms consist of a number of known structures (such as via fields, differential pairs etc.). Dimensional and dielectric properties of these structures are supplied which can be used in situations to compare simulation results with S-parameter measurement-derived results. In this way simulation-measurement correspondence can be assessed.
The platforms come standard with a Users Guide, rugged Pelican-style case, and stand assemblies that allow the unit to be oriented vertically or horizontally on any axis.
When using VectorStar, the user also benefits from the confidence that measurements performed on the CMP platform and the user’s own design are of high integrity due to VectorStar’s:
