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.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… High Performance Materials', Chapter 1

03/17/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Choosing the right material for your application can be a major challenge. These are “cost to performance” decisions that need to be made to select material that will meet the expected performance requirements and the desired cost targets. Selecting a material that meets cost targets but fails to perform in prototype development testing results in costly revision spins, cost increases and delays to market. Chapter 1 of this book helps readers understand what resin choices to make for optimal electrical performance.

A High-Voltage PCB Design Primer

01/12/2022 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
Of all the different boards a designer can create, a high voltage PCB design can be complicated and requires strict attention to safety. If not laid out correctly these boards can be safety hazards or can fail to function on first power up, leaving a designer with wasted time and effort. In the best case, the board will function reliably for a long period of time thanks to correct layout practices. High-voltage PCB design can be as complex as any high-speed digital design. Boards for high-voltage systems can be space constrained and they carry important safety requirements. They also need to be highly reliable to ensure they will have a long life when run at high voltage and current.
