Z-Zero Webinar June 30: Eric Bogatin on Engineering the PDN


Reading time ( words)

Please join Z-Zero on Tuesday, June 30, 202 as Dr. Eric Bogatin, Dean of the Teledyne LeCroy Signal Integrity Academy at Be The Signal and author of the best-selling book Signal and Power Integrity—Simplified presents "Engineering the Power Distribution Network," the next event in this ongoing webinar series. 

The power distribution network (PDN; sometimes also called the power delivery network) consists of all the interconnects from the voltage-regulator module (VRM) to the pads on the chip and the metallization on the die that locally distributes power and return current. This includes the VRM itself, the bulk decoupling capacitors, the vias, the traces, the planes on the circuit board, the additional capacitors added to the board, the solder balls or leads of the packages, the interconnects in the packages mounted to the board, the wire bonds or C4 solder balls, and the interconnects on the chips themselves.

The first and primary role of the PDN is to keep a constant supply voltage on the pads of the chips and to keep it within a narrow tolerance band, typically on the order of 5%. This voltage has to be stable, within the voltage limits, from DC up to the bandwidth of the switching current, typically above 1 GHz.

In this webinar, Dr. Bogatin will explore the entire PDN ecosystem, including both board and system-level tradeoffs.

Autodesk’s Fusion 360 Merges ECAD, MCAD

05/28/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Andy Shaughnessy spoke with Autodesk’s Matt Berggren about the company’s Fusion 360 EDA tool and the new capabilities added to the software. Matt explains how Fusion 360 blends ECAD and MCAD functionality in one environment and at an affordable price, and why he believes it will help round out Autodesk's electronic portfolio with end-to-end capabilities.

Advances in Medical Diagnostics Using LoC and LoPCB Technologies

03/31/2020 | Pete Starkey and Happy Holden, I-Connect007
Several techniques for detection and diagnosis of COVID-19 are currently under development, some of which may detect the novel virus exclusively; others may also detect strains that are genetically similar. A detection kit recently announced uses technology based on a portable lab-on-chip (LoC) platform capable of detecting, identifying, and differentiating MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and COVID-2019 in a single test.
