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.

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.
