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.

Front-End Expert Mark Thompson of Prototron Circuits Publishes Book on Producing the Perfect Data Package

10/03/2018 | Dan Beaulieu
Errors and inaccuracies slow the process down because the CAM department has to correct their data package or ask customers to clarify their intent. In the quick-turn prototype business where people pay for time, a slowdown on a three-day turn can be a disaster. I recently sat down with Thompson to find out more about his new book and discuss the quest for the perfect data package.

Lee Ritchey Returns to AltiumLive with 32 Gbps Design Class

09/26/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Lee Ritchey was one of the instructors for last year’s inaugural AltiumLive event, which drew hundreds of PCB designers. Now, Lee is back, teaching a high-speed design class at next week’s AltiumLive in San Diego. That class is sold-out, but you can catch Lee teaching the same class at the January AltiumLive event in Germany. I asked Lee to explain what he plans to cover in this course, and why PCB designers and design engineers should consider attending one of the events.

Judy Warner: AltiumLive’s Second Year to be Even Better Than First

09/19/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
Last year, Altium launched its AltiumLive event with shows in San Diego and Munich, Germany. This year, the event has expanded to include an extra day of classes. Altium is gearing up for the San Diego event in early October and the German show in January 2019. I recent spoke with Judy Warner, director of community engagement for Altium, about what designers should expect at both shows, and how the company can build on the success of the 2017 events going into the future.
