Nine Dot Connects Webinar: What Qualifies a Circuit as High Speed?


Reading time ( words)

Technologists at Nine Dot Connects have been asked the following question many times: "What's the frequency in which a design is considered to be high speed?" Would it surprise you to know that a 10 MHz design which could be wire wrapped or placed on a protoboard could constitute high speed? The fact is, frequency is only a part of the story.

The bigger question is, "What factors qualify the circuit as high speed?" Issues such as EMI, crosstalk, receiver noise floor, and signal propagation all come into play. It is not just a matter of avoiding or mitigating these issues; it's about optimizing the communication path.

This August 30 webinar will focus on exactly what qualifies a circuit as high speed. Sean Kelly, who has provided several introductory webinars on the topic of high speed in the recent past, will be presenting.

Carl Schattke: I Started Designing Boards When I Was 12

10/25/2017 | Barry Matties, Publisher, I-Connect007
Growing up with a father who owned a PCB design bureau, Carl Schattke, CID+, may have been predestined to design circuit boards for a living. In fact, he’s been designing boards for nearly his entire life. Carl gave a keynote speech at the recent AltiumLive event in San Diego, where I caught up with him to discuss a lifetime spent in PCB design, as well as the graying of the PCB design community and what might be done to inspire a youth movement in PCB design.

Meet One of the Industry’s Newest PCB Designers

10/23/2017 | Barry Matties, Publisher, I-Connect007
Molly Knewtson is a recent graduate now working for a pharmaceutical company as a mechanical engineer. She was asked if she would consider learning PCB design and taking on some design projects. She agreed, though she had never considered circuit design as a career path. I sat down with Molly at PCB West to learn how she came to this position and what might be done to inspire more people from her generation to join the industry.

Launching a New PCB Design Curriculum in Serbia

06/28/2017 | Associate Professor Bojan Jovanovic, University of Niš, Serbia
Let me share with you an experience that I remember from my college days. When I was a student, I had a professor who was too proud of the fact that she was an academic. “You don’t need to know how to manually solder electrical parts or how to design printed circuit boards,” she lectured. “It is important that you understand the formula for charge carrier currents in a p-n junction.” I started working as an R&D engineer for a Swiss company that developed and manufactured instruments for measuring magnetic fields and electrical currents. And nobody ever asked me about charge carriers in p-n junctions.
