DesignCon 2015 Names Best Paper Awards Winners


Reading time ( words)

DesignCon, the premier conference for chip, board and systems design engineers in the high-speed communications and semiconductor communities, today announced the winners of the Best Paper Awards from the blockbuster 2015 program. Recognizing outstanding contributions to the educational goals of the DesignCon program, the awards serve to acknowledge the authors as leading practitioners in semiconductor and electronic design. DesignCon's 20th anniversary event was held January 27-30 in Santa Clara, CA. To view the full list of winners, visit: ubm.io/DC15PaperWinners.

Papers were judged on merit as well as presentation quality during DesignCon 2015. All papers are reviewed for originality, relevance, impact and quality by the DesignCon Technical Program Committee, comprised of leading experts from all levels of the electronic design space – chip, board, package and system. Presentation quality is judged based on audience feedback collected at DesignCon. The awards were divided into four categories: Modeling & Simulation, High-Speed Signal Design, Power Integrity & Signal Integrity, and Test & Measurement.

Judy Warner: AltiumLive’s Second Year to be Even Better Than First

09/19/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
Last year, Altium launched its AltiumLive event with shows in San Diego and Munich, Germany. This year, the event has expanded to include an extra day of classes. Altium is gearing up for the San Diego event in early October and the German show in January 2019. I recent spoke with Judy Warner, director of community engagement for Altium, about what designers should expect at both shows, and how the company can build on the success of the 2017 events going into the future.

PCB Design Challenges: A Package Designer’s Perspective

09/17/2018 | Bill Acito, Cadence Design Systems
The challenges faced by the PCB designers of today are significant. If we examine the breadth of designs, we find ever-increasing data rates and more high-speed signal routing that drive additional challenges meeting signal-quality requirements, including reflection signal loss and crosstalk issues. At the same time, designers are being asked to complete designs in shorter cycle times and in smaller form factors. They must come up with new and more complex routing strategies to better control impedance and crosstalk. Manual implementation is often time-consuming and prone to layout errors.

Mentor Preparing for Next-Gen PCB Designers
