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.

Altium Prepares for Munich Show as Growth Continues

01/17/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
It’s been just two months since the AltiumLive event drew several hundred designers to San Diego, California, and Altium is already gearing up for the next show in Munich, Germany (January 15–17, 2019). I recently spoke with Chris Donato, VP of global sales for Altium, about the upcoming AltiumLive show as well as the company’s growth over the past few years.

January 2019 Issue of Design007 Magazine Available Now

01/15/2019 | I-Connect007
The component shortage is getting crazy. Some PCB designers are finding their favorite capacitors on 50-week and 80-week lead times, or worse. How do you design a board today when the components you need won’t be available for a year or more? In the January 2019 issue of Design007 Magazine, we asked our expert contributors to explain the current component shortage, as well as some of the workarounds that can help you get your next design out the door sooner rather than later.

A Fractal Conversation with Jim Howard and Greg Lucas

01/15/2019 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Veteran PCB technologists Jim Howard and Greg Lucas have made an interesting discovery: Certain shapes of copper planes make a PCB run more efficiently than other shapes, a process they dubbed fractal design. It doesn’t appear to cost a penny more, and testing suggests that fractal design techniques could eliminate edge noise. Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy asked Jim and Greg to discuss the fractal design process, and the advantages of using this technique.
