Siemens Webinar June 14: Stackup Planning and Signal Integrity

Reading time ( words)

Your stackup is the foundation upon which your entire PCB design is built, but often little thought is placed upon its design. When a fabricator designs and produces a stackup, they focus on the materials they have available and their process experience in order to give you the impedance values you require. However, they often don’t concern themselves with your overall signal integrity. 

Siemens will discuss this, and much more, at a live webinar and Q&A on June 14, 2022. In this 30-minute webinar, we will explore how stackup design fits into the current workflow, and how the stakeholders involvedelectrical engineers, materials engineers, PCB designers, SI engineers, and NPI engineersuse and interact with that design. 

Attendees will learn how to: 

  • Identify external factors that cause loss within a stackup design
  • Build a robust stackup quickly
  • Select and compare dielectric materials from multiple vendors

Presenter Don Kost will discuss best practices for stackup design and show how these have been streamlined and incorporated into Z-planner Enterprise.

DownStream Flexes in Rigid-Flex

11/14/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During PCB West, I caught up with DownStream Technologies co-founder Joe Clark and Senior Product Marketing Manager Mark Gallant. We discussed some of their latest tool updates, including a greater focus on bringing post-processing functionality, such as inter-layer analysis capability, to rigid-flex circuits. Joe also offered a look at global design trends going into 2023, as more engineers take on PCB designer roles while senior designers are retiring.

Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson Shares Insights From New PCB Design Book

10/27/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
There’s designing the “perfect” circuit board and then there’s designing a board that is “perfect for manufacturing.” While seasoned designers and design engineers understand many of the nuances, PCB fabricator Sunstone Circuits has just published a new book specifically for new designers who have the knowledge of design but are still learning what it means to get the board manufactured. Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson takes the reader through a series of situations that should help clarify what’s happening in the fabrication process and how to adjust a board design to be better suited for manufacturing.

Forming Standards for Ultra HDI

10/25/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
To get the latest news about ultra high-density interconnections (UHDI), we checked in with Jan Pedersen, NCAB Group’s director of technology. Jan is co-chair of IPC D-33AP, and a great source of overall DFM expertise as well. We asked him to give us a snapshot of UHDI in the industry, where we’re headed, and what this means to PCB designers.
