High Speed Digital & Mixed Analog-Digital System Designers
This is a one day "how to do it right the first time" class for EE's and CAD Layout Designers who need to build digital / digital-analog systems that are functional, reliable and quiet.
"Right the First Time" designs require knowledge, planning, and analysis. As a result you can save the aggravation of multiple board spins that blow through both budgets and contract delivery dates.
What You Will Learn
- PCB Stack-up .... What is a good high speed stack-up and why?
- Understanding Routing Topology & Termination for:
- SDRAM / DDR2/3..Single ended signaling (Busses, Clocks, & Strobes)
- LVDS differential signaling vs true differential signaling
- SERDES (PCI Express, XAUI, etc)
- Building a Quiet Power Delivery Network
- How do planes, capacitors, and capacitor mounting choices effect
- Power Delivery Impedance, Driver & Receiver Performance, and Ground Plane Noise
- Eliminate EMI Issues by understanding how:
- Proper Signal Integrity and Power Integrity design minimizes noise creation
- Proper Component Placement and Routing eliminates antennae creation
- Proper I/O filtering to keeps noise off I/O leads
- Proper I/O shielding works to eliminate noise from differential I/O signals
- Create Solid Analog Digital Systems that maximize isolation while maintaining quiet high speed communications
- Learn the Basic Theory of Electric & Magnetic Shielding. Don't complain that it does not work if you don't understand how it works.
Who Should Attend
- PCB Designers
- Engineering Managers
- Design Engineers
Controlling EMI in High-Speed Designs
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) has become a much larger problem in recent years. Fast edge rates on signals, coupled with the proliferation of high volumes of low-cost electronic devices, have made...
Modeling Signal Discontinuities in SERDES Channels: Minding the Details without Breaking a Sweat
This webinar will go through the basic steps of creating 3D models for common PCB structures, and then using these models to analyze a high speed serial channel.
