OC Designers Council Event to Focus on SI Routing Guidelines Nov. 18


Reading time ( words)

What: Orange County chapter of the IPC Designers Council "Lunch 'n' Learn" Meeting
Date: Wednesday November 18, 2015
Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm  
Where: Harvard Athletic Park multi-purpose room – Irvine    
Topic:    PCB Routing Guidelines for Signal Integrity and Power Integrity. Also includes recommendations to improve high-speed performance of any design at any data rate Speaker:  Chris Heard, signal integrity engineering consultant, CSH Consulting LLC

Speaker Chris Heard has been deeply involved with signal and power Integrity for over 25 years and has a wealth of knowledge to share. Chris’s presentation will cover a list of "Do’s and Don'ts" regarding the most commonly seen routing practices that have a big impact on signal integrity. His presentation will cover the importance and signal integrity’s impact on drill size, pad size, antipad size, ground plane overhang, transition vias, AC capacitors, skew compensation, backdrilling, blind vias, narrow vs. wide lines, and surface vs. inner layer routing.  Use of leading simulation tools will be presented.

In his presentation on power integrity, Chris will cover voltage drop and impedance response vs. frequency for various power plane examples. The impact of various capacitor sizes and placement and the use of buried capacitor layers will be shown and discussed. The interaction and the understanding of these two disciplines are vital to success of the designer in achieving fully optimized designs. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn valuable tips from our expert speaker.

A Library Management Cautionary Tale

02/12/2021 | Steven V. Chavez, CID+
The library management of footprints, land patterns, or cells—however you refer to them in your ecosystem—is one of the most critical items in the foundation of any PCB or CCA design. When I was asked to write an article on this topic, so many thoughts and experiences instantly flooded my mind. After 30+ years of designing PCBs throughout the industry, I have my share of experiences and stories about footprints. One particular experience stands out.

Wild River ISI-56 Platform Accelerates SerDes Testing

02/02/2021 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently spoke with Al Neves, founder and CTO of Wild River Technology, about the release of their new ISI-56 loss modeling platform. Al explains why it was so critical that this tool meets the stringent requirements of the IEEE P370 specification (which he helped develop), and why he believes this is currently the best tool for SerDes testing and characterization.

Seven Tips for Your Next Stackup Design

02/01/2021 | Eric Bogatin, University of Colorado, Boulder
Rarely do we have the luxury of designing a board just for connectivity. When interconnects are not transparent, we must engineer them to reduce the noise they can generate. This is where design for signal integrity, power integrity and EMC—collectively high-speed digital engineering—are so important. Eric Bogatin offers seven tips for stackup design.
