Microwave circuits are popularly formed on multi-layered organic or non-organic substrates. In the microwave circuits, the attenuation of planar transmission lines such as striplines, microstrip lines, and coplanar lines are determined by their conductor loss, dielectric loss and radiation loss. Among them, the conductor loss is a major factor in the attenuation of the planar transmission lines. A new measurement method is standardized in this document to evaluate the conductivity of transmission line on or in the substrates such as the organic, ceramic and LTCC (low temperature co-fired ceramics) substrates. This standard describes a measurement method for resistance and effective conductivity at the interface between conductor layer and dielectric substrate, which are called interface resistance and interface conductivity.
