Laying out high-speed buses has become a truly joined-up science, with both PCB and IC designers on the team.
Since the first implementation of electronic simulation in the schematic capture software realm, circuit designers have been using SPICE for analog and digital “what-if analysis”. Engineering students adopted it for their studies and then continued using it throughout their careers. PCB designers typically have little or no experience with SPICE applications. No worries, follow along with me and get to know your SPICEs!
If you migrated from CR-5000 Board Designer you might recall my ToolTip a few years back, specific to using the Parameter Resource file, in order to save and reuse settings you define within the...
UCLA CHIPS has pioneered the concept of small dielet integration directly on a Silicon-based interconnect fabric (Si IF) or a flexible Fan-out wafer-level Package.
Linda Mazzitelli, PTC’s Product Management Director, goes on to explain how the collaboration between MCAD and ECAD is vital to the success of any electromechanical design process.
