The presentation focused on the requirements for taking accurate VNA/PNA S-parameter measurements (DC to 50GHz) of an interconnect, representing only the “socket” and also showing how the measurement parameters in frequency can affect the results when transforming into the time domain.

The presentation also discussed the process of creating an accurate 3D Electromagnetic field model to predict any pin configuration the customer may need. Results from some of the recent laboratory measurements were also included in the presentation, including our 1.0mm (25×25 mil) Invisipins as well as our 0.65mm (16×16 mil) Invisipins.
