17_EV_076384 Understanding Insights and Overcoming High Speed Design Challenges

0.5   Day | Seminar | Where & When

About the Seminar

Every generation change in digital interconnect standard (e.g. DDR, PCIe, USB Type C, SATA etc.) introduces faster connectivity between electronics devices. It also brings along new design challenges, in particular, issues with Signal Integrity (SI) and Power Integrity (PI) on the PCB designs. Design success demands that today’s engineer have the skills needed to overcome these challenges and face down any risks. In this seminar, Keysight experts will share their industry expertise and present design, analysis and simulation solutions for effectively addressing signal integrity and power integrity challenges.

Paper Abstracts

Demystifying VIAs in High-Speed PCB Design

A high-speed signal traveling vertically through the board layer is several times more complex and difficult to analyze than a signal traveling horizontally along the same layer. This presentation covers the basics of VIA construction and its impact to high-speed signals. We will also highlight tips for better VIA design and introduce different simulation techniques for generating more transparent interconnects and allow you to make various tradeoffs.

Thermal Effects, Power Integrity and Your PCB

Did you know that in addition to validating the electrical performance of the power integrity on your PCB, it is also crucial to perform a thermal validation as well? In this topic we will introduce the thermal aspects of power integrity in your PCB designs and why it is critical to consider them. To better understand a design’s power integrity from the thermal viewpoint, it provides a theoretical background for heat transfer and an overview of the thermal analysis technologies. Finally, we will demonstrate the importance of performing thermal analysis on PCB designs by showing a practical PCB design example.

Addressing Crosstalk Challenges from Design Simulation to Actual Board Analysis and Debug

Crosstalk is becoming a huge challenge in today’s design due to higher signal transfer rate in very compact designs. Crosstalk can corrupt the data transmission, closes the signal eye opening, adds jitter to the signal and increases bit errors which will affect the operation of your product. There can be many type of crosstalk aggressors, which includes adjacent transmission lines, power supplies, phase lock loops and reference clocks. Identifying and minimizing crosstalk early through simulation and analysis is critical to reduce the board spins at the product level. If crosstalk is present in the board you are measuring and affecting your design, effective tools are needed to quickly and effectively analyze and debug the issues. This presentation will provide the tools and insights how to solve crosstalk challenges from simulation to actual board analysis and debug.
