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.

Thermal Management Update with Doug Brooks

01/17/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
I had the opportunity to talk with our contributor Doug Brooks recently. He has been doing some research on temperature effects on PCB traces over the last few years, and I wanted to check the status of his latest thermal efforts. He discussed his work with Dr. Johannes Adam, why temperature charts based on a trace in isolation are inaccurate, and how the industry remained so wrong about PCB temperatures for so long.

Mike Jouppi Discusses his Drive for Better Thermal Data

01/12/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
If you mention thermal management in a group of PCB designers and design engineers, Mike Jouppi’s name usually pops up. Mike is an engineer and founder of the Thermal Management LLC consulting firm. He spent years updating IPC’s charts on current-carrying capacity, which had been unchanged since the 1950s. I recently caught up with Mike and asked him to give us his views on the state of thermal management, as well as the tools and standards related to thermal design.

That’s Hot: Ventec’s Goodwin on Thermal Management

01/03/2018 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
IPC’s fall committee meetings were held in conjunction with SMTA International, as has been the case for several years now. Patty Goldman sat in on some subcommittee meetings, including one on laminates, where she met up with Ventec COO Mark Goodwin for a discussion on thermal management from a laminate supplier’s perspective.
