Mentor Offering Training in Atlanta, Tampa in April


Reading time ( words)

Nearly all PCB designs have signal integrity, power integrity and EMI problems when they are first created. Finding these problems can be a big challenge. Simulation is important but do you simulate all nets? How do you analyze designs for EMI effects? Do you know that your power distribution network will work at DC and over a wide frequency range?

Many companies approach these problems with a difficult process involving design guidelines, experience and many independent reviewers. Visual inspection is also used to identify any issues in layout that may cause problems. This is so time-consuming and error prone that often every check is not done with the same level of quality. Appropriate experts are used to validate electrical issues on the board, and this creates a further bottleneck, slowing the design and development process down even more.

Our agenda will include a description of the “electrical signoff” problem, and an overview of the HyperLynx tools that address the signoff requirements. Several short demos will show how easy-to-use and effective the HyperLynx virtual prototyping tools can be.

What You Will Learn

  • The “electrical signoff” challenge
  • How HyperLynx virtual prototyping solutions can improve the “electrical signoff process”
    • HyperLynx DRC
    • HyperLynx SI
    • HyperLynx PI

Cadence: Bullish on AI

10/15/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
David White has been involved with artificial intelligence research for almost 30 years. Now, David is the senior group director of R&D for Cadence Design Systems, and I knew we’d have to speak with him for this issue on AI. In a recent interview, we discussed his decades of work in AI, Cadence’s research into AI and machine learning, and what he believes AI could mean for the EDA tools of the future.

Artificial Intelligence: The Future of EDA?

10/10/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been making inroads into a variety of industries in the past decade or so, from automobiles to medical devices. Naturally, EDA tool companies are taking a look at AI. Does AI offer a way forward for PCB design tool developers? I recently interviewed Paul Musto, director of marketing for the Board Systems Division of Mentor. We discussed Mentor’s plans for integrating AI into EDA tools, and why we may be at the very beginning of understanding the pros and cons of this new technology.

AltiumLive to Feature Altium Designer 19 Release

10/03/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
This week, Altium Designer 19 will be officially launched to the public during AltiumLive, which takes place October 3-5 in San Diego. I asked Altium COO Ted Pawela to give us a preview of Altium Designer 19, and to explain how AD19 fits in with the company’s long-term plans. He also discusses Altium Live’s plan to provide PCB design content that is not vendor-specific to help support the entire industry, not just customers.
