Sierra Circuits to Hold Signal Integrity & Power Integrity Workshop


Reading time ( words)

Sierra Circuits will host a SI/PI workshop presented by DesignCon 2017 Engineer of the Year, Heidi Barnes, and Signal Integrity Application Scientist, Tim Wang-Lee, from Keysight Technologies on September 12-13, 2019 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

This intensive signal integrity and power integrity workshop provides you with the necessary skills to tackle everyday SI and PI challenges with Keysight PathWave advanced design system (ADS).

The SI session starts with the holistic approach to solve any signal integrity problems by using analysis techniques such as eye diagram, mixed-mode S-parameters, time domain reflectometry (TDR) and single pulse response. The session continues to exercise the techniques in design and exploration of single-ended and differential channels. Finally, the SI workshop concludes with EM model extraction and investigation of application and standards.

In the PI sessions, we cover the elegant flat impedance design technique and explore the cohesive ADS Power Integrity eco-system. In the process of PI eco-system simulations, you will use impedance vs. frequency data to create measured models, estimate decoupling capacitance, and debug noise ripple on a power rail.

The combination of lecture and hands-on exercises allows attendees to explore the presented topics in real-time while being mentored by an expert in the field. The hands-on approach allows you to gain confidence in your ability to apply these skills on your own, at your workplace. You will learn to design, simulate and troubleshoot most common signal integrity and power integrity related issues.

Lady Gaga’s Keyboardist Designs a Circular Piano

01/16/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Who says a modern piano has to be a certain shape? Not Brockett Parsons, Lady Gaga’s keyboardist. He worked with Dave Starkey and Chuck Johnson to create PianoArc—a custom-designed 360-degree circular keyboard and a company with the same name. I spoke with Brockett and Dave at AltiumLive to learn more about the design efforts that went into this fascinating instrument.

Interconnect Reliability Correlation With System Design and Transportation Stress

08/19/2019 | Dr. Paul Wang, Vincent Weng, and Dr. Kim Sang Chim, Mitac International Inc.
Interconnect reliability is very critical to ensure product performance at predefined shipping conditions and user environments. Plating thickness of the compliant pin and the damping mechanism of electronic system design are key success factors for this purpose. This paper discusses design variables—such as pin hard gold plating thickness, motherboard locking mechanism, and damping structure design—to ensure interconnect reliability.
