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.

Who Really Owns the PCB Layout? Part 2

02/07/2018 | Paul Taubman, Nine Dot Connects
In Part 1 of this series, Paul Taubman made the bold statement that the PCB layout is just as much a mechanical effort as it is an electrical one. In Part 2, he threads the needle, explaining why he believes that a PCB truly a mechatronic design, and why mechanical engineers may be more prepared to take on the PCB layout.
