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

Fadi Deek Discusses Mentor’s New Power Integrity eBook

04/17/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At DesignCon 2018, I ran into Mentor’s Fadi Deek, the author of both of Mentor’s I-Connect007 eBooks: the newest, "The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to Power Integrity by Example," and their first book, "The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to Signal Integrity by Example." We sat down and discussed how the idea for the books came about, as well as some of the power integrity challenges facing PCB designers and engineers.

Mentor’s HyperLynx Automates SERDES Channel Design

04/09/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Mentor recently released the newest version of its HyperLynx signal integrity software. This version may be the first SI tool in the industry to fully automate SERDES design channel validation. I spoke recently with Chuck Ferry, product marketing manager with Mentor, about the new HyperLynx and some of the new serial link design capabilities that customers have been demanding.

Julie Ellis: TTM’s Interface Between Designer and Fabricator

04/04/2018 | Barry Matties, Publisher, I-Connect007
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.
