Mentor and Lamsim: 2018 DesignCon Best Paper Available Now


Reading time ( words)

High-speed PCB designs are getting faster and faster. However, as the rate of GB/s increases, so too does the need to pay attention to material properties. Copper roughness, the area where the copper adheres to the laminate, is one of those properties. This 2018 DesignCon Best Paper award-winner describes a technique for increasing simulation accuracy through proper modeling of copper roughness.

This paper was written by Vladimir Dmitriev-Zdorov and Igor Kochikov of Mentor, a Siemens business, and Bert Simonovich of Lamsim Enterprises. To download this paper, click here.

The I-Connect Editorial Team recently spoke with Bob Williams, managing director of Pulsonix. He discussed some of the new features in the upcoming version of the Pulsonix PCB design tool, Version 12, including collision avoidance and other 3D options that allow certain MCAD functions within the ECAD environment.

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.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Carl Schattke

05/11/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Not long ago, I caught up with Carl Schattke, CEO of PCB Product Development LLC and a longtime PCB designer, for his thoughts on “designing in a vacuum.” As Carl points out, if you follow PCB design best practices, knowing the identity of your fabricator is not a “must-have.” He also offers some communication tips for discovering the information you do need, including one old-fashioned technique—just asking for it.
