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.

Susy Webb: Training the New Generation of Designers

08/02/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
For years, I’ve been running into Susy Webb at PCB West, where one of the classes she teaches is PCB design basics. I always ask Susy about the class, especially the attendees’ backgrounds. Over the years, her class has begun drawing more and more degreed engineers, with fewer “traditional” PCB designers attending. I asked Susy to discuss the next generation of PCB designers, some of the trends she’s seeing among new PCB designers, and the need for designers to take charge of their own design training, whether their management agrees or not.

Multi-board Design with Altium’s Ben Jordan

07/25/2018 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Not too long ago, historically speaking, most electronic products contained only one PCB. But multi-board designs have become almost ubiquitous over the past decade, and EDA software companies are working to improve and simplify the multi-board design process. Editors Andy Shaughnessy and Stephen Las Marias spoke with Ben Jordan, director of product and persona marketing for Altium, about the company’s multi-board design tools, the challenges that customers face, and the numerous trade-offs that designers must contend with while performing multi-board design.

3D Convergence of Multiboard PCB and IC Packaging Design

07/18/2018 | Bob Potock, Zuken
A new generation of 3D multiboard product-level design tools offer major improvements by managing multiboard placement in both 2D and 3D, and enabling co-design of the chip, package and board in a single environment. Multiboard design makes it possible to create and validate a design with any combination of system-on-chips (SOCs), packages, and PCBs as a complete system.
