"Dielectric properties and losses are increasingly more important in signal link path characterization, as data rates increases. High-frequency effects such as dielectric losses, dispersion and skin-effect losses need to be considered. For ensuring signal integrity, it is important to characterize losses of printed circuit board (PCB) dielectrics. To extract dielectric properties of a stripline transmission medium, an analytical technique was used...Two test materials were studied, and the extraction procedure was refined. This technique was applied to microstrip transmission lines. Two analytical solutions were derived for extracting practical material parameters. A microstrip test vehicle was designed and the two extraction methods were applied to a set of test boards. A standard measurement protocol was developed"--Abstract, page iii.
