Sign Up For Mentor’s July 21 Webinar: FPGA-PCB Co-design

Reading time ( words)

Today’s leading-edge systems require a modern FPGA I/O optimization interface that enables you to quickly perform pin swapping and layout-based I/O optimization within the PCB design flow. Fact is, the lack of, or poor FPGA I/O optimization often leads to longer routing cycles and longer trace lengths which in turn result in the need for additional signal layers and vias which can impact signal integrity. A design tool flow with FPGA I/O Optimizer technology eliminates the barriers between FPGA and PCB designers and provides “correct-by-construction” FPGA I/O assignment allowing pin swapping and layout-based I/O optimization within the PCB process.

The ability to read in, export and synchronize FPGA designers’ HDL and constraint files ensures full consistency during the iterative concurrent design process. Incidentally, it also allows creating high pin count FPGA PCB parts ready for instantiation in minutes. Modern FPGA I/O optimization helps you not only accelerate design time-to-market, but also reduces manufacturing costs.

In this webinar by Mentor, a Siemens business, attendees will learn how modern FPGA I/O optimization can help you not only accelerate design time-to-market, but also reduce manufacturing costs.

What Attendees Will Learn

  • How to create a multi-thousand pin FPGA part in minutes
  • How to enable collaboration between FPGA and PCB designers
  • How to optimize FPGA pin assignment in the context of the PCB layout

Who Should Attend

  • Electrical engineers
  • PCB designers
  • Engineering managers
  • Anyone interested in FPGA-PCB co-design

Chris Hanson: New Ventec IMS Dielectrics Rated for Higher Temps

07/07/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Andy Shaughnessy recently spoke with Chris Hanson, global head of IMS Technology for Ventec International Group. During their conversation, Chris discusses his group’s recent efforts to create new IMS materials, with a focus on dielectrics. As Chris explains, Ventec has developed several new dielectrics that can withstand much higher operating temperatures, one of which is UL-rated for a maximum operating temp of 155°C, which may be the highest for an IMS dielectric.

PCB Builder from Digi-Key Lets Customers Order Directly From Board Shops

06/04/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
On June 2, components distributor Digi-Key Electronics announced the release of PCB Builder, a tool that lets customers have PCBs shipped directly from the fabricator. PCB Builder also allows customers to perform file layer checks and receive instant quotes from multiple fabricators. Andy Shaughnessy spoke with Josh Mickolio, supplier business development manager for Digi-Key, about the development of PCB Builder and what this tool means to PCB designers and design engineers.
