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.

As a field application engineer for TTM, Julie Ellis sees the problems that can occur between circuit board designers and manufacturers. Barry Matties spoke with Julie at the AltiumLive event in Munich about the age-old problem of throwing designs “over the wall,” the trend towards HDI, and what advice she would give new designers.

Like many young entrepreneurs, Natasha Baker knew she wanted to run her own company years before she finally pulled the trigger. But she waited until the time was right, developed a business plan, and stuck to it. Now, five years after SnapEDA was launched, the company continues to expand its library parts and symbol creation services, with the help of some of today’s most cutting-edge technology. I recently caught up with Natasha, and we discussed how her team utilizes technology that has helped SnapEDA to become a major player in this space.

In order to understand the current climate, we have to look at the division of labor that took place in electronic design about 40 years ago. The labor was divided into two processes, with the first being the design itself. This process was (and still is) owned by the electrical engineers. Though circuit design has changed, the methods for representing the circuit have not. Paul Taubman of Nine Dot Connects explains.
