Mentor's Web Seminar on HyperLynx DRC Safety Critical and Creepage Checks


Reading time ( words)

Mentor, a Siemens business, has announced an upcoming web sebinar on "HyperLynx DRC Safety Critical and Creepage Checks" on January 17, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. US/Eastern (convert to local time).

Safety is paramount when working with electronic systems so standards organizations mandate safety checks to prevent electrical discharge. Unfortunately, manual inspections are error-prone and they struggle to detect violations as PCB design becomes more complicated. Automating the process can detect hard-to-find errors and save weeks off your PCB design time.

About the Presenters:

Ernie Frohring
Sr. Applications Engineer
Trilogic, Inc.

Ernie joined Trilogic, Inc, a leader in design automation software sales and support, in 1994 after a 20 year career in electronic design and instrumentation, specializing in emulators and logic analyzers. Since then he has leveraged his knowledge of hardware instrumentation to become experienced in the software tools used for electronic design. He has worked with various PCB layout, schematic capture, analog simulation, and signal integrity analysis tools, and is especially interested in the integration of these tools into a design environment. He currently specializes in high speed design, teaching classes, doing presentations, and working one-on-one with customers using the EDA tools from Mentor Graphics.

He graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1973 with Bachelor's & Master's degrees in Electrical Engineering. His hobbies include chasing total solar eclipses to interesting parts of the world

Rory Riggs

Rory earned a BS EE from the University of Idaho in 2011 and continued on at UI for post graduate research. He joined Mentor Graphics soon after as an Associate Rotation Engineer, gaining experience as a Corporate Application Engineer in training. The Associate program focuses on supporting Mentor tool products DxDesigner, Xpedition and HyperLynx and ending with a project in Technical Marketing. After the rotation, Rory was hired as a Technical Marketing Engineer and has been there for 4 years at Mentor, A Siemens Business focusing on high-speed products as well as all PCB flow tools in the Electronic Board Systems portfolio.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Mark Thompson

05/12/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I-Connect007 Columnist Mark Thompson of Out of the Box Manufacturing has been in CAM engineering for decades, and he’s also worked as a PCB designer, so we knew he would have a few things to say about working in a vacuum. As he explains, the designer isn’t the only stakeholder in the process who feels like he’s working inside the dust bag of a Hoover upright.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Carl Schattke

05/11/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Not long ago, I caught up with Carl Schattke, CEO of PCB Product Development LLC and a longtime PCB designer, for his thoughts on “designing in a vacuum.” As Carl points out, if you follow PCB design best practices, knowing the identity of your fabricator is not a “must-have.” He also offers some communication tips for discovering the information you do need, including one old-fashioned technique—just asking for it.

Tips for Designing in—and Escaping From—the Vacuum

05/10/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We asked Monsoon Solutions VP of Engineering Jen Kolar if she had any thoughts on “designing in a vacuum,” and her response was, “Absolutely!” In this wide-ranging discussion, Jen and Senior PCB Engineer and Director of Designer Development Cory Grunwald share some tips and techniques for designing PCBs in a vacuum, and a few methods for getting out of the Hoover’s dust bag. As Cory points out, “In the end, the communication is going to happen anyway. It’s just a matter of whether it happens at the end or in the beginning.”
