New Solution for Measuring Dielectric Properties of Materials
Indianapolis, November 28, 2018 -
Copper Mountain Technologies'
(based in Indianapolis) and Compass
Technology Group are pleased to announce their new Epsilometer solution for measuring
the dielectric properties of materials. This solution measures dielectric substrate materials
at frequencies from 3 MHz up to 6 GHz and can accommodate sheet specimens 0.3
to 3 mm thick.
Dr. John Schultz of Compass Technology commented, "Unlike previous dielectric analysis
technologies, this new method uses computational electromagnetic modeling to invert the
dielectric permittivity and loss. This represents a significant advance over conventional
methods, which use analytical approximations and are limited to frequencies below 1 GHz."
With the launch of Epsilometer Copper Mountain Technologies delivers another solution
that combines its metrology-grade portable network analyzers with subject matter expertise
to solve important industry problems. CMT CEO Irena Goloschokin stated, "Accurate determination
of dielectric properties of radomes, packaging, and microwave substrates is important
for design of functioning wireless devices for the Internet of Things and emerging 5G
