PADS Webinar: Simulate and Optimize Analog, Mixed-Signal Circuit Design


Reading time ( words)

Taking a product design from concept to creation can be a complicated process of decisions and tradeoffs. Attention to every detail is required, particularly for the analog, mixed-signal portions of your design.

This webinar will introduce designers to the PADS AMS Design Suite, a complete design capture solution and analog, mixed-signal (AMS) virtual prototyping environment. With this suite, you will be able to create electronic product designs faster and easier while ensuring design intent, performance, and reliability.

What Attendees Will Learn

  • Types of circuit simulation and analysis for behavioral verification, scenario exploration, and component optimization
  • The power and flexibility of VHDL-AMS and SPICE-based simulation and modeling to accurately represent both a circuit’s electronic and electromechanical elements
  • How to balance component costs with tight tolerances against their impact on circuit and manufacturing performance
  • How to use a waveform analysis tool and expression calculator for in-depth analysis, measurement, and transformation of simulation data
  • The use of the PADS AMS Design Suite for design, simulation, and analysis of analog, mixed-signal (AMS) circuits

PCB Cooling Strategies, Part 1

01/19/2018 | Bin Zhou, EDADOC
With the development of communication and IT industries and the ever-increasing demand for information analysis, many chip makers have racked their brains trying to provide customers with better technology, such as increased computing power and storage capacity of chips as well as diversifying their product offerings.

Streamlining Thermal Design of PCBs

01/10/2018 | Dr. John Parry, CEng, Mentor
When designing a PCB, thermal issues are often locked in at the point of selecting and laying out the chip package for the board. After that, only remedial actions are possible if the components are running too hot. Assumptions made about the uniformity of the airflow in these early design stages can mean a disaster for the commercial viability of a PCB if those assumptions are incorrect. A different approach is needed to improve reliability and to optimize board performance. Dr. John Parry of Mentor explains.

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.
