The PCB Systems Forum 2019 India will be held in Chennai (August 6), Pune (August 7), and Bengaluru (August 9).
 
Overview

Establishing an effective PCB systems design validation process reduces design spins and increases product quality.

Increasing performance requirements coupled with a pressure to improve product quality are driving engineering teams to consider alternatives to their current validation approach. Best-practice design processes validate the digital twin (a model of your design) early and often to minimize re-spins and actually shorten the overall design cycle. This 'shift-left' approach enables design engineers and layout designers to validate within their native environment, minimizing the bottleneck waiting for specialist reviews, and freeing the specialists to resolve the remaining critical issues. This process allows engineering teams to better cope with increasing complexity and focus their efforts on product innovation.

This event will cover research on best-practice process strategies (as well as implications of avoiding them). Case studies will show how engineering teams have deployed an ‘optimal’ automated validation process to accelerate sign-off. Analysis technologies that could be deployed within any ECAD flow will be discussed, including multi-board schematic, signal and power integrity, analog/mixed signal, thermal, vibration and manufacturability.

Solutions Covered

  • Automated multi-board schematic analysis—Full inspection of all schematic nets to increase design quality and reduce re-spins
  • Rule based error identification enabling checks for potential issues early and often during the layout implementation. Quickly layout and routing issues that could lead to SI, PI, EMI and other problems
  • Design to manufacturing optimization with comprehensive DFM analysis, incorporated into your PCB design process
  • Signal integrity analysis (pre and post layout)
  • Power integrity (DC and AC) analysis for correct implementation of the power distribution network
  • 3D, broadband, full-wave electromagnetic field solver for SI, and EMI
  • Integrated testability analysis—Reduce overall cost of test by addressing testability considerations in schematic capture and layout
  • Analog / mixed-signal simulation (inclusive of PCB material effects through automated parasitic extraction)
  • Design exploration to automatically vary actual parameters in a design concept and identify high performing design option

Altium Designer 19.0 Features Printed Electronics Design Functions

08/08/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The newest version of Altium Designer—revision 19.0—includes functionality for designing printed electronic circuits. We wanted to get the scoop on Altium’s PEC tools, so we asked Nikolay Ponomarenko, Altium’s director of product management, to give us a tour of the new functions.

Mentor Tools: Optimized for Flex and Rigid-flex Design

08/01/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
With the launch of the new Flex007 section in Design007 Magazine, we asked David Wiens, product marketing manager with Mentor, a Siemens Business, to tell us about their tools’ flex and rigid-flex design capabilities. As David explains, today’s higher-end design software tools are optimized for flex design, making workarounds a thing of the past.

PCB Reliability: Via Design

07/12/2019 | Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly
When considering the long-term reliability of a PCB, you must take into account any vias on your board. While an invaluable and essential part of board design, vias introduce weaknesses and affect solderability. This article will discuss vias, the potential concerns that are introduced into your board through their implementation, and how to minimize those concerns to acceptable levels.
