Keysight EEs of EDA Software Helps University Students Conduct Research


Reading time ( words)

Keysight Technologies has donated Keysight EDA software to Chungnam National University (CNU) in Daejeon, South Korea, as part of the Keysight EEsof EDA University Educational Support Program. This is the third software donation this year, following earlier donations to South Korea’s Sogang and Dongguk Universities, and is intended to help CNU foster well-rounded electronics engineering experts.

“We are proud to partner with top South Korean universities through our Keysight EEsof EDA software donation program,” said Duk-Kwon Yoon, Keysight’s country general manager in South Korea. “Our software will help CNU’s research engineers and students acquire the skills they need to positively impact industry and advance quickly in their future research.”

Keysight EDA’s donation to CNU was formally announced during a ceremony at CNU on Aug. 18. The donation comprises three licenses of Keysight EMPro 3-D electromagnetic (EM) simulation and analysis software. In return for the donation, CNU agrees to develop RF and microwave research projects (e.g., advanced RF microwave components) using circuit-3-D EM co-simulation. CNU will also use the software for academic purposes, and to create technical papers, examples and webcasts.

CNU recently released a microwave circuit design book using Keysight EDA’s Advanced Design System software. The book was written by Dr. Kyung-Whan Yeom, professor in CNU’s department of radio science and engineering and a Keysight Certified Expert. The book is a compilation of Dr. Yeom’s studies and insights from his 20 years of expertise using ADS design software.

“CNU is among the best RF and microwave research universities in South Korea,” said Sang-Chul Jung, president of CNU. “Partnering with a company like Keysight is key to maintaining our leading position, along with having the best teachers and facilities. CNU looks forward to developing RF and microwave talent using the industry’s leading Keysight EDA software and hardware tools.”

“Keysight has played a pivotal role in advancing technology and we are excited to see this tradition continue with CNU,” said Jun Chie, general manager and vice president of Asia-Pacific Field Operations, Keysight. “RF and microwave research is the foundation of South Korea's leadership in commercial communication. Together, Keysight and CNU will definitely strengthen that foundation.”

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Cutting Respins: Journey to the Single-spin PCB

01/07/2021 | Chris Young, The Goebel Company
PCB design is more than a short sprint to the finish line; it is a journey best suited for the prepared adventurer. According to a study by Lifecycle Insights, the average PCB design project requires 2.9 respins. These respins can cost anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars—each! As an engineer/business owner, I find respins frustrating because I would rather spend my time and money applying scientific principles inventing, improving technology, and solving problems. I am not an advocate for perfectionism, but rather I focus on becoming a better adventurer. Sometimes I get to taste the sweet wine that is a single spin PCB. As fellow adventurers, let’s discuss some topics that influence unnecessary return trips on our PCB design journey: simulation, technical reviews, and interest in PCB design.
