This free seminar will discuss the new features included in Keysight’s EEsof EDA simulation tools and how the software helps engineers focused on high-speed digital electronics solve their toughest design challenges. The seminar will look at all stages of the pre-layout, post-layout and measurement design flow.
Tools featured in the seminar include: ADS, ADS Controlled Impedance Line Designer (CILD), SI S-parameter analysis tools, and the ADS PCIe and USB test benches used with Keysight real-time oscilloscope certified test compliance software.
Attendees also will see a preview of the new power integrity PI Pro simulator with IR drop and decoupling capacitor optimization, available in upcoming release of ADS 2015.09. Registration is required to attend.
July 14 and July 16
Agilent Technologies, 5301 Stevens Creek Boulevard, Santa Clara, CA, the Aristotle Room.

At PCB West, Zuken shared a booth with Nano Dimension. Zuken has been working with Nano Dimension for some time, and adding support for 3D printing and nanotechnology to its design tool platforms. I sat down with Zuken’s Humair Mandavia and Nano Dimension’s Simon Fried to learn more about this alliance, and to find out more about this odd-looking box being demonstrated in Zuken’s booth.

Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.
Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”
