John will be presenting on two topics:

First presentation:   

“Signal Integrity Effects of Different PCB Structures”
This presentation will discuss the following:

  • Return path vias for single-ended and differential pairs.
  • How the void around the differential via pair structure effects signal integrity.
  • How back-drilling effects signal integrity and an eye diagram.
  • Fiber weave effects.
  • Tabbed routing.
  • Inductive compensation.

Second presentation:

“Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Basics, and How it Will Affect PCB Design”
This presentation will discuss the following:

  • Machine Learning vs Artificial intelligence vs deep learning.
  • How a machine “learns”
  • PCB based examples of different types of Machine Learning.
  • DARPA’s plans for AI and PCB design
  • Other examples from industry leaders

Reserve a spot on your calendar for Tuesday, January 22 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational “Lunch ‘n’ Learn” event.

A Textbook Look: Signal Integrity and Impedance

05/18/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Believing that I knew a bit about signal integrity and controlled impedance, I was pleased to take the opportunity to connect with an educational webinar that I hoped would extend my knowledge. In the event I was surprised at how little I actually knew, and the webinar was an excellent learning opportunity. The webinar was introduced and expertly moderated by Anna Brockman of Phoenix Contact in Germany.

New Book From Isola Highlights Importance of Material Selection

01/14/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In "The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to... High Performance Materials," the latest release from I-007eBooks, readers will learn how to overcome challenges associated with choosing the right material for their specific application. Author Michael Gay of Isola provides a clearer picture of what to know when determining which material is the most desirable for which products. PCB materials and DFM expert Mark Thompson says, “I love this book, particularly the sections on the effects of the glass weave, the history of laminate, and the difference between Dk and effective Dk."

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.
