Sign Up For Mentor's Webinar on April 28: Save Time Using Constraint Management

Reading time ( words)

When advanced technologies are utilized in a design, more sophisticated rules and constraints are needed. Some constraints may be more physical, such as traces and nets that must be routed on a specific layer, or need to be restricted to a certain area of the board. These may be easy to keep track of manually for a few nets, but if you have hundreds, even thousands of complex constraints, you need an automatic way to manage and adhere to these during design.

Register for this live webinar to see how RF Laboratories, Inc used constraint management to cut down on design iterations, saving time and cost. 

What You Will Learn

  • How a long time PADS user utilizes the constraint management to reduce design iterations and speed up design time.
  • How RF Laboratories, Inc. defined complex constraints.
  • How they successfully navigated adhering to constraints during placement, routing and even when editing traces with push-and-shove techniques.

Who Should Attend

  • PCB designers
  • Electrical engineers
  • CAD managers

This webinar is scheduled for April 28, 2020, from 10:00-11:00 am Eastern. For more information or to register, click here.

Designing PCBs With Additive Traces

04/28/2022 | Tomas Chester, Chester Electronic Design
Advances in technology have been clear to see within the component packaging industry, as the ball grid array (BGA) package sizes reduce from 1.0 mm pitch to 0.8 mm, 0.4 mm, and even beyond. However, while these improvements have occurred with component packages, it has become increasingly more difficult to break out and route the dense circuitry associated with these parts. Currently, the high-density interconnect (HDI) method typically used for the breakout of such parts has been to create the smallest possible subtractive-etched traces with microvias to allow for connections and escapes on the innerlayers of your PCB.

Designing Additive and Semi-Additive PCBs

04/26/2022 | Cherie Litson, CID+, Litson1 Consulting
With components getting smaller and electronic devices becoming more compact, we are reaching the physical limits of the typical etched fabrication processes. To address these limits, new additive and semi-additive processes are being developed to fit into the current fabricators’ production lines without too much disruption or extra cost.

AltiumLive 2022: Dwight Morse Offers a Supply Chain Primer

04/07/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently spoke with Dwight Morse, channel marketing manager for SiliconExpert, about his AltiumLive presentation, “Getting the Information to Create Successful Designs Quickly,” which is available online now. Dwight offers advice to designers who are facing 50-week component lead times, and he discusses some of the trends he sees in the supply chain right now, including a view from the vantage point of the world’s top video game makers, who are having as much trouble finding parts as you are.
