Mentor Paper: Ensuring DDRx Reliability by Integrating SI, PI


Reading time ( words)

Interactions between high-speed signals and the system power delivery network (PDN) can degrade signal quality, resulting in data errors that can cause electronic systems to fail. With power-aware simulation, companies can avoid the erratic system behavior caused by PDN-related problems.

This paper takes a look at several mechanisms of PDN-SI interaction, highlights their causes, and discusses the design trade-offs in mitigating these effects. The paper was written by Nitin Bhagwath, Min Maung, and Todd Westerhoff.

Book Excerpt: An Introduction to The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Stackups

07/07/2022 | I-Connect007
To give readers a sample of The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to... Stackups—The Design within the Design, by Bill Hargin, we are providing the book's introduction. He writes, "Another book about stackups? If you’re asking this question, I’d like to know the book you’re thinking of, as I was looking for it a few years back. I have a pretty good PCB signal integrity (SI) library, and I’ve only found one chapter on stackup design so far."

What Happens When You Assume?

07/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
What is design with manufacturing and what does true DWM look like in operation? In this interview, I-Connect007 columnist Dana Korf explains what it will take to achieve total communication among all the stakeholders in the PCB development cycle. He also stresses the need for everyone involved in PCB design and manufacturing to stop making assumptions, even at the risk of being labeled as “that guy” who asks too many questions.

Master the Art of Communication With Manufacturers

06/30/2022 | Kyle Burk, KBJ Engineering
As mentioned in the May issue of Design007 Magazine, design is performed, at times, in a vacuum. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Whenever circumstances allow, design should be performed by communicating with all stakeholders throughout the design process, hence the emphasis on the word with in DWM. Communication can occur through personal correspondence such as email and voice conversations or through more formal design meetings—in person or through videoconferencing. No matter which means of communication you prefer, it’s important to communicate early and often with stakeholders involved in the downstream processes as you bring your project to realization.
