Nine Dot Connects Presents Stack-up and Impedance Webinar August 31


Reading time ( words)

How do you intuitively engineer good impedance controlled PCB stack-up and routing plans for each new design which meet all of their specific impedance control design requirements?  

  • Search on the Internet?
  • Do hand calculations?
  • Ask a friend?
  • Always force the design into the same one or two because they worked in the past?
  • Buy a very expensive and complex tool like Polar?
  • “Feel” the best solution?
  • Hire an “expert” to do it?

Can you intuitively visualize and understand what it’s doing and how to reliably use it?

How do you efficiently approach gathering the raw data to make the final choices?

This webinar, presented by Nine Dot Connects on August 31, will answer these questions, and many more.

As signal speeds increase the shortcomings of materials (like FR-4) become critical. Dielectric constants aren’t constant resulting in dispersion. Loss increases and is frequency dependent resulting in signal degradation over longer runs. Gathering information on lots of materials, tabulating all the information at various frequencies along with the specific thicknesses available, selecting optimal materials and adjusting stack-ups to compensate can be very time consuming and error-prone.

In this webinar, Nine Dot Connects’ Sr. Principle EE Jeff Condit will show you intuitively how various elements of a PCB’s structure and routing affect the electromagnetic fields and in turn the couplings, energies, and characteristic impedances of traces on it. Practical suggestions, methods, alternatives and solutions will be discussed.

This Month in Design007 Magazine: HDI Design, Landless Vias, VeCS, and More

11/09/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Andy Shaughnessy, Happy Holden, and Dan Feinberg recently met with James Hofer, general manager of Accurate Circuit Engineering, to discuss via design techniques and via reliability from the fabricator’s viewpoint. As Hofer explained, even with open lines of communication between the designer and the board shop, there are plenty of variables to contend with regarding proper via design, especially when working with PTFE materials.

Roundtable Discussion: App Notes and Fab Notes

11/09/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Andy Shaughnessy recently invited four recent contributors—Dana Korf, Jen Kolar, Mark Thompson, and Kelly Dack—to review the June and August 2020 issues of Design007 Magazine, which covered app notes and fab notes, respectively. In this wide-ranging roundtable, the group discusses some of the ongoing challenges related to incomplete and inaccurate design data and why communication can preclude many of these problems. What follows is the transcript from this conversation.

Real Time with… AltiumLive 2020: Vince Mazur Previews New Design Rule Features

11/03/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Altium Technical Marketing Manager Vince Mazur discusses his presentation at the recent AltiumLive, which focused on updates to Altium Designer's approach to creating design rules and constraints. Vince explains that these features will be more intuitive for the user, and the update, which is currently in beta, will be released in the future. The company is shifting from “rule-centric” design rules features to capabilities that are more “design-centric,” with applicable rules for each object available at one click.
