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

The weather forecast was wrong! Despite my apprehension and winter clothes, there was very little snow at the Hilton Munich Airport. It could have been any season of the year inside the splendid convention facility, which was also the venue for the second European AltiumLive design summit. AltiumLive brought together a family of over 220 electronics engineers and designers eager to learn from top industry experts and applications specialists who were equally eager to share their knowledge and experience freely.

Martyn Gaudion on Signal Integrity Modelling and Stackup Tools

12/11/2018 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The accuracy of signal integrity modelling continues to improve, and stackup tools are becoming widely used, which now include material suppliers' datasheet information. During the recent electronica show in Munich, Germany, Martyn Gaudion, managing director at Polar Instruments, explained how Polar often serves as a bridge between PCB design and fabrication, and why educating his customers is so critical.
