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.

Design Is a Pivotal Piece of the Puzzle

07/03/2019 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
As a field applications engineer at TTM Technologies, which has fabrication and manufacturing locations around the world, Julie Ellis sees a wide variety of customer design requirements. In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, Julie explains how PCB designers can influence the development of the PCB. She shares a variety of tips and tricks that designers can implement early in the design process to help optimize fabrication and assembly later on and keep small issues from becoming big problems downstream.

Albert Gaines: Design All Comes Down to Documentation

06/28/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During SMTA Atlanta, I spoke with Albert Gaines of HiGain Design. We discussed Albert’s belief that everything starts with design and that too many engineers and designers focus solely on the final board at the expense of the documentation, which is a designer’s most important product. Do you consider your documentation to be a critical product?
