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.

Words of Advice: Planning a New Design

06/06/2019 | The I-Connect007 Team
In a recent survey, we asked the following question: What do you think is the most important thing a designer should remember when planning a new PCB design? Here are a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

Design Rules Recipe: Solvability, Manufacturability, and Performance

06/06/2019 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
One thing that we’ve noticed lately: Each designer seems to have his or her own way of using PCB design rules. There doesn’t seem to be much agreement about setting or using design rules. So, in this true experts panel, Mike Creeden of San Diego PCB joined Freedom CAD’s Scott McCurdy, Jay Carbone, and Rich Kluever to share their views on PCB design rules.

Wild River, eSilicon, and Samtec Team up for 112-Gbps Test Vehicle

06/06/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During DesignCon, I sat down for an interview with Tim Horel from eSilicon, Al Neves of Wild River Technology, and Matt Burns from Samtec. They’ve recently teamed up to create a 112-Gbps test vehicle that may be the first of its kind of test fixture.
