Mentor White Paper--Concepts of Power Integrity: Controlling Impedance Across a Bare CavityAugust 27, 2018 | Fadi Deek, Mentor, a Siemens Business
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
The power distribution network (PDN) is the path from the power supply source (VRM) to the ICs (active devices). At low impedance, the PDN delivers adequate current to the receiver, enabling the PCB to function as desired.
Without a low-impedance path across the PDN, noise can propagate throughout a PCB, causing bit errors, voltage ripples, timing violations, and more. This white paper by Fadi Deek of Mentor, a Siemens Business, examines how impedance can be controlled in the PDN cavity.

At DesignCon, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with Brad Griffin, product marketing group director for the System Analysis Group at Cadence Design Systems. Brad explains how this analysis tool enables designers to address SI and PI issues early in the design process, before they become costly errors, and why he believes his late co-worker Dennis Nagel would be proud to see his efforts come to fruition.
Indium Corporation to Showcase Proven EV Products and High-Reliability Alloys at Productronica China02/28/2024 | Indium Corporation
As a materials pioneer and trusted partner in electric vehicle (EV) and e-Mobility manufacturing, Indium Corporation is proud to showcase its high-reliability alloys and soldering solutions at Productronica China, March 20-22, in Shanghai.
Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company has unveiled its plan to build, test and fly a hybrid-electric vertical takeoff and landing demonstrator (HEX / VTOL) with a tilt-wing configuration. The design is the first in a series of large, next generation VTOL aircraft — ranging from more traditional helicopters to winged configurations—which will feature varying degrees of electrification, and an advanced autonomy system for optionally piloted flight.
