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.
