IPC APEX EXPO: Hofer Discusses the Pros and Cons of Backdrilling


Reading time ( words)

General Manager James Hofer of Accurate Circuit Engineering discusses the process of backdrilling vias, including the benefits and drawbacks. Backdrilling can improve signal integrity, but it can create stubs that may act as unwanted antennas.

Fadi Deek Discusses Mentor’s New Power Integrity eBook

04/22/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At DesignCon 2018, I ran into Mentor’s Fadi Deek, the author of both of Mentor’s I-Connect007 eBooks: the newest, "The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to Power Integrity by Example," and their first book, "The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to Signal Integrity by Example." We sat down and discussed how the idea for the books came about, as well as some of the power integrity challenges facing PCB designers and engineers.

Cadence’s Sigrity Automates Power Integrity Simulation Earlier in Design Cycle

04/04/2018 | Kelly Dack, CID+, EPTAC
DesignCon is always a great place to check out the latest PCB layout and simulation software tools. During DesignCon 2018, Guest Editor Kelly Dack met with Sam Chitwood, a product engineer with Cadence. Sam explained how the Cadence Sigrity simulation software now allows users to make decisions early in the design process, and how this can help optimize the design of the power delivery network and ensure signal integrity in complex PCBs.

Mentor White Paper: Characteristic vs. Instantaneous Impedance

12/29/2017 | Mentor
Successful signal integrity analysis depends on a fundamental concept: impedance. Without a thorough understanding of the impedance values that a signal encounters along the way, designers cannot maintain good signal quality from source to receiver.
