This free seminar will discuss the new features included in Keysight’s EEsof EDA simulation tools and how the software helps engineers focused on high-speed digital electronics solve their toughest design challenges. The seminar will look at all stages of the pre-layout, post-layout and measurement design flow.
Tools featured in the seminar include: ADS, ADS Controlled Impedance Line Designer (CILD), SI S-parameter analysis tools, and the ADS PCIe and USB test benches used with Keysight real-time oscilloscope certified test compliance software.
Attendees also will see a preview of the new power integrity PI Pro simulator with IR drop and decoupling capacitor optimization, available in upcoming release of ADS 2015.09. Registration is required to attend.
July 14 and July 16
Agilent Technologies, 5301 Stevens Creek Boulevard, Santa Clara, CA, the Aristotle Room.

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.

If your company is having trouble designing PCBs for profitability, where does the blame fall? Is it management’s fault for having inefficient processes, or is it the fault of the designers and design engineers for not keeping up to date with their training? During DesignCon, I asked Al Neves of Wild River Technology to weigh in on this question. As he explains, you and your manager might both be to blame for inefficiencies in the design process.

The I-Connect007 team recently spoke with design instructor and author Eric Bogatin about the EMI challenges facing PCB designers today. Eric is a “signal integrity evangelist” with Teledyne LeCroy, as well as an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, and technical editor of the Signal Integrity Journal. In this interview, Eric explains why EMI is so prevalent and what designers and design engineers can do to avoid EMI from the start.
