Cascade Chapter Designers Council Meeting is June 12


Reading time ( words)

The Cascade Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will be meeting on June 12. This evening event is free, with dinner sponsored by Mentor. Don't miss out on this great educational opportunity to advance your knowledge and design skills.

The guest speaker is Robert Hanson, and electrical engineer and signal integrity design instructor. He will present Achieving Signal Integrity and Meeting EMI Radiation Requirements Using High-Speed Connectors.

Robert will be showing examples of connectors that have poor control of EMI radiation/immunity, which are also affected by mutual inductance and high signal reflection. Next, examples of adding ground pins will be shown that in turn enhance capability. The ground blade connector will be shown with different signal/ground pin configurations to show comparative transmission capabilities. Two widely used high-speed connectors for circuit cards and backplanes will be compared. A method to interface a connector to a land trace to eliminate reflections will follow. Finally, a connector that passed radiated emissions up to 500MHz will be discussed. 

Date
Wednesday June 12, 2019

Time
6:00 - 8:00 pm 

Location
Lake Washington Institute of Technology - Kirkland Campus. The meeting will be held in room A102 in the Southeast corner of the building on the 1st floor.

This event is free, but donations are greatly appreciatedPlease RSVP no later than 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11.

HyperLynx: There’s an App for That

08/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
I recently spoke with Todd Westerhoff, product marketing manager for signal integrity software tools at Siemens. We discussed a new capability called HyperLynx Apps that offers a new take on traditional signal and power integrity analysis, and how that fits in with the Siemens plan to put SI and PI tools into the hands of more designers early in the design cycle.

Webinar Review: Thermal Integrity of High-Performance PCB Design

08/01/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Electrical and mechanical engineers may be working on the same product development teams, but they speak different languages, and they have completely different objectives. As a result, these folks almost never use the same software tools. But Cadence’s new Celsius Thermal Solver is an exception to the rule. In a new CadenceTECHTALK webinar, “How Static and Dynamic IR Drop Analysis Can Help PCB Designs and Challenges,” product manager Melika Roshandell and SerDes SI/PI engineer Karthik Mahesh Rao explain how the EE and ME can both use the Celsius Thermal Solver to achieve their disparate objectives.

The Great Divide in PCB Simulation Software

07/26/2022 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
Today’s PCB design engineers have more layout and analysis tools at their disposal than ever before. Over the years we’ve seen layout tools become more automated, rules-driven, and more integrated. Now we even have integration between design tools from different vendors and ranging across domains, starting with basic circuit design, and spanning up to PLM and ERP integration. It really is a great time to be a designer.
